Two days after breaking the Boys 11-12 800m freestyle record, Tidal Wave’s Kael Yorke finished in 17:50.31 in a resounding effort to win the 1500m freestyle event, the longest event at the Amateur Swimming Association of T&T’s (ASATT) Invitational Swimming Championships, in Westmoorings.

 

The morning session took off yesterday with the superb performance, which saw Yorke break the former record held by Marlins’ Christian Marsden (18:28.56) by over half of a minute. Marsden’s record was made at last year’s invitational. Trailing Yorke was Graham Chatoor (19:10.88) for second. 

 

Meanwhile, Marsden went on to win in the 13-14 age group with Tidal Wave sisters, Shania (20:20.86) and Syriah David (19:08.63) securing the 13-14 and 15-and-Over divisions, respectively.

 

The feat brought the total number of records broken for this year’s invitational to seven, with one record going to Atlantis Aquatics and the other six going to Tidal Wave, which has managed to yet again increase its lead among the field of 29 clubs. Marlins has held on to its second overall spot with Titans trailing in third.

 

The night prior, Atlantis Aquatics recorded its first and only record breaking performance, the invitational’s sixth, when he replaced Christian Homers’ 11-12 50m breaststroke record in a new time of 33.19 seconds. The former record was 34.30 seconds. Thompson’s teammate Abraham McLeod went on to win the 15-and-over 50m breaststroke in 28.57. Other races swum that night were the 100m butterfly and the 200m breaststroke events.

 

The night closed with the four by 50m medley relays. 

 

The competition closed last evening after press time.
