ManSask 2018 Short Course Championships Records Broken

‘Twas a nice 3-pack for the Seals, & a notable taking-down of longstanding previous marks.

Girls 11-12                                            
200 Medley      13-Dec-18               Mia West        SEALS   2:26.86
Boys 13-14                                             
50 Free 14-Dec-18               Dylan Montemurro-Anderson     SEALS   24.51  
        50 Fly  16-Dec-18                Dylan Montemurro-Anderson     SEALS   26.97  

West does the hat trick, with this her 3rd record, in 3 different events, in this her first season at the top of the times.

        And this one is truly a remarkable achievement:  Mia takes down the previous record of 2:29.30 by 2 & a third seconds, last set by teammate predecessor Dawn Gilhooly in early 1978.  Yes fans, that was 40 years, 10 months & 9 days ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Montemurro-Anderson strikes twice:

·       his 50 Free is a full quarter second under the predecessor mark by Ian Guillen of Manta in 1992, yup that was 16 years, 10 months & 2 days ago.

·       the 50 Fly is first under 27 seconds in this event, a third of a second under the previous record by Manta’s Aaron Chanas-Larue in 2009, only almost 10 years ago.

Congratulations all.
