(The Philippine Star) - December 5, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Weissenheimer Academy’s Marc Bryan Dula and University of Santo Tomas’ Sean Terence Zamora smashed two new marks each to lead the record-breakers on the opening day of the 87th Philippine Swimming League (PSL) National Series - eighth Sen. Nikki Coseteng Swimming Championship yesterday at the Diliman College swimming pool in Quezon City.

Dula, a multi-gold medalist in the Singapore and Thailand meets, registered one minute, 25.86 seconds to erase the 1:31.06 old mark in the boys’ eight years 100-meter individual medley (IM). He also broke the 39.12  record in the 50m butterfly with a new time of 36.35.

Zamora, the undisputed pool king in the Indian Ocean All-Star Challenge in Australia, submitted 2:12.65 in the boys’ 15-over 200m IM, eclipsing the 2:18.82 old mark, then checked in at 59.97 in the 100m backstroke, way better than the previous mark of 1:03.53.

“We are happy seeing these kids break records. They’re motivated to make it to the team going to international tournaments next year. These swimmers are now qualified for our major competitions abroad in 2016 in Australia and Japan. We are looking forward see more records falling in day two,” said PSL president Susan Papa.
