Swimming: Maximillian Ang breaks national Under-14 men's 200m breaststroke record

The first national record has fallen at the Singapura Finance 46th Singapore National Age Group Swimming Championships.

The competition resumed on Tuesday morning at the OCBC Aquatic Centre following a one-day break, and it was Maximillian Ang who swam his way into the record books as he broke the national Under-14 men's 200m breaststroke record.

The 13-year-old clocked 2:26.59 in the morning's heats, lowering the previous mark of 2:27.00 set by Dynes Quek last April.

He now holds three national U-14 records (two individual, one relay). Last December, the Singapore Sports School student broke the U-14 400m individual medley record at the Singapore National Swimming Championships.

Maximillian, who was in Kunming, China, for high altitude training last year with his school, is also part of the quartet that holds the U-14 4x200m freestyle relay record.

The finals will take place on Tuesday evening at the same venue.
