Freestyle record for Wilson


RECORD BROKEN: Luke Gillette

Mark Fraser

 Atlantis Aquatics’ Zarek Wilson broke the Boys eight & under 100m freestyle record at the Silver Sharks Swim Club Invitational last Saturday at the Marlins Aquatics Club Olympic-sized pool in Westmoorings.

However, Tidal Wave Aquatics (1198.5 pts) continued their dominance of the local swimming scene after gaining their first title at the  ASATT December Invitational in 2013,  scoring a huge victory in the club standings with Marlins Aquatics Club (609) second and Centre Of Excellence Sea Hawks (388) third.

The hosts, Silver Sharks, were fourth (354) while Atlantis(331.5) were fifth with Flying Fish (223.5) sixth and Areios Aquatechs (165) seventh. Blue Dolphins (146), Tsunami Swim Club (145) and Torpedoes Swim CLub (145) rounded out the top ten.

Individually, Wilson splashed to the lone record of the meet with a one minute, 12.11-second effort that broke Luke Gillette’s  2010 record of 1:12.15. He also won the Boys eight & under 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke events in a meet where swimmers were allowed to swim a maximum of five events.

The next event on the ASATT calendar is the National Open Long Course Championships later this month at Marlins. It is the deadline meet for selection to the June 26-July 7 Caribbean Islands Swimming Championships (CISC) in Barbados.
