More records have been broken by Quah Zheng Wen and Tan Jing-E on the third day of the Singapore National Age Group Swimming Championships at the Singapore Sports School on Thursday night.

Zheng Wen, 18, bettered on his previous national 100m backstroke mark of 56.11sec set in the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar by touching home in 55.99s.

The Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) student's timing would have earned him a bronze medal in the 2010 Youth Olympics Games (YOG).

Jing-E, a 13-year-old Methodist Girls' School student, finished the 100m backstroke event with a timing of 1min 5.76sec to break Chan Fang Yi's national Under-14 record of 1:06.01 that was set in the 2012 National Inter-School Swim Championships.
