Harden Swim Club has once again proved that they are the club to beat in the 2016/2017 swim club championships. Coach Sarah Bunt said she could not be more pleased with how the kids have performed during the season.
“The kids really deserved the records they broke,” coach Bunt said. “They train hard, four days a week with minimal complaining. Now the season is over and the pool is closing down next week, we will go back to dry land training in the off season, but we will try to get to a pool a least once a month to train.”
Here are the records the kids broke in the final heat of the four week championship: Jessica Bunt broke the 800-metre record which has been held since 2009 with a time of 13.52.73. The previous time was 14.56.01.
Abbey Wade broke the 1500 metre record, which has also been held since 2009 with a time of 25.28.55. The previous time 28.17.37. Jess was under the record as well.
Ryan Daley set a new record for the 800 metre. His time was 13.20.11 and in 1500 metre 25.24.44.
