Record aim for Iako­vidis

Bath Chronicle - - SPORT -

Uni­ver­sity of Bath stu­dent Filip­pos Iako­vidis has set his sights on an­other na­tional record when he rep­re­sents his na­tive Cyprus at the FINA World Short-course Swim­ming Cham­pi­onships in China later this month. Iako­vidis smashed his own records in both the 50m and 100m back­stroke while rac­ing for the Uni­ver­sity of Bath at last month’s BUCS Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Sh­effield. “I would like to set an­other record in China in the 100m back­stroke,” said Iako­vidis. “This is my first World Cham­pi­onships and it will be a re­ally good op­por­tu­nity to swim fast against some great swim­mers. The aim is to gain ex­pe­ri­ence and go as quick as I can.” Iako­vidis, who will also race in the 100m in­di­vid­ual med­ley, has pre­vi­ously rep­re­sented Cyprus at the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships and the Games of the Small States of Europe.
