Seven records broken at Korumburra Swimming Carnival

IT was an eventful day on Sunday at the Korumburra Outdoor Pool where South Gippsland’s swimmers gathered for a carnival at Korumburra Swimming Club.
Spectators enjoyed the cooler conditions while nearly 150 swimmers competed in the pool.
From U8s to (well) over 25s, the competitors put in an impressive effort in the 50 metre pool.
Seven Korumburra Swimming Club records were broken on the day.
Cooper Quaife convincingly broke three records in the 12 year old boys’ age group: the 50m butterfly in a time of 34.53 (breaking Nicholas Besley’s 2002 record of 39.10), the 50m freestyle in a time of 30.78 (breaking Nicholas Besley’s 2002 record of 33.07), and the 200m Individual Medley in a time of 2:55.87 (breaking Eric Zubcic’s 2013 record of 3:16.38).
Sophie McKenzie also set three new club records, in the 14-year-old girls’ age group: the 50m Breaststroke in a time of 38.97 (breaking Robyn Pearce’s 1985 record of 44.71), the 50m Freestyle in a time of 32.82 (breaking Cathy Webster’s 1997 record of 32.99), and the 200m Individual Medley in a time of 3:04.35 (breaking Natasha McDonald’s 1998 record of 3:19.72).
Jess Cook set a new record for the over 30 women’s age group with a time of 45.53 in the 50m Bbeaststroke (breaking Noelene Cosson’s 2003 record of 47.85).
This Sunday it’s Relay Day at Phillip Island.
