Records tum­ble in the pool

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

COAL­STOUN Lakes State School stu­dent Blake Bechly has en­joyed great success in the pool this year.

Af­ter break­ing sev­eral records at the Biggen­den district com­pe­ti­tion, he trav­elled to Mun­dub­bera to com­pete in the North Bur­nett Zone car­ni­val.

And the 10-year-old broke a record that had been held for 31 years when he swama time of 34.54 in his freestyle event.

The pre­vi­ous record of 36.10 was set in 1981 by C Stafford.

In back­stroke he broke R Bernie’s 2000 record and set the new time to beat at 43.51.

An­other swim­mer who per­formed well at the zone car­ni­val was Jacy Kirdy of Mun­dub­bera who was re­cently se­lected as a re­serve in the Wide Bay breast­stroke med­ley re­lay team.
