Maltese swimmers set two more records at Kazan Euros

There was more success for Maltese swimmers on the final day of competition at the European Short Course Swimming Championships being held in Kazan, Russia when two more national records were set.

Thomas Wareing, competing in the 400m Individual Medley, established a new record time of 04:27.54, beating his own record of 04:40.02 which he established in Manchester in October 2016.

Sasha Gatt competed in the 400m freestyle event clocking a time of 04:17.41 beating the previous record time of 04:21.37 which was established by Mya Azzopardi in Istanbul last March.

“We couldn’t be prouder and happier at the results Dylan, Sasha and Thomas have achieved in the European Short Course Swimming Championships,” ASA president Joe Caruana Curran said in a statement.

“These results show that the work being put in by the swimmers and their coaches with the support of the Association, the Maltese Olympic Committee, and SportMalta are bearing fruit. “We are optimistically cautious for our sport’s participation in the forthcoming Commonwealth Games in 2022, the  Games of the Small States of Europe in 2023, and the Olympic Games in 2024.”

The Maltese contingent will return to Malta on Monday.
