2nd International Trophy Adapted Swimming – Gran Premi Diputació de Barcelona close the first day of competition with a world record and 4 Spanish records.
Sarai Gascón, the main protagonist of the day, was really “excited” about her new world record. Gascón got the record very soon, after one hour of the beginning.
But it was not the last one for the Terrassa swimmer. She didn’t expect to get a new world record. She was not looking for it. But, on the 50 meters butterfly final, Sarai broke her own record with a time of 30 seconds and 96 tenths. “I’m surprised”, confessed Gascón after the final.
Her new world record was not the only one. Marian Polo in 100 meters backstroke (1’ 13” 37), Josu Pérez in 200m freestyle (2’ 41” 77) and Òscar Salguero (1’ 09” 79) and Toni Ponce (1’ 28” 48) in 100 meters breast, they got a Spanish new record.
140 swimmers from more than 5 countries have participated in the first day of competition. Swimmers came from Austria, Hungary or Kazakhstan mixed with local athletes from four different federation and various clubs. Tomorrow will finish the 2nd international Trophy Adapted Swimming with the finals on the afternoon.
