Dylan Cachia set a new national record in the 800 metres freestyle

The second and final day of the Aquatic Sports Association of Malta’s 7th Time Trials, held on Thursday, saw the achievement of another three records.

Ella Fenech Attard swam the 400m Medley and achieved an Age Group B record with a time of 5:56.93. The previous time of 06:05.10 had been achieved by Kristy Delia in December 2019.

Thomas Wareing swam the 400m Medley in a new national best time of 4:35.21. Previously, the record was also held by Thomas with a time of 4:37.71 achieved in Samorin in March this year.

Finally, Dylan Cachia clocked a national record time of 8:23.65 in the 800m freestyle to better his own previous best of 8:28.63 set in March last year.

“The results achieved over the two days of competition were a great close to the time trial season this year. This shows that, despite the challenges faced due to the pandemic, athletes are still committed and working harder than ever to improve their performances,” said ASA president Joe Caruana Curran at the end of the competition.
