By Colisile Sacolo | 2021-11-25

SWIMMING - TWO swimming juniors Luca Fraser and Harley Hoy continue to make strides in the sport.

This follows their triumph during the Eswatini Swimming Association (ESA) Age Group Gala 3 held over the weekend, where they set new national records in the boys and girls categories. The SwimLab duo had previously secured podium finishes during the CANA zone 4 held in Botswana last year.

Luca was at his best as he broke two records in the boys (11/12 years) category in the 400m with a time of 6:21:03, a previous record held by Hawley in 2010.

He showed his heroic display in the 200m breaststroke with a time of 3: 06:7 where he broke a record previously set by Hall in 2002. Harley also had a fantastic day as she set a new national record in the girls (13/14 years) 100m butterfly with a time of 1.1199.

She managed to break the 21-year-old record of L De La Motte with her splendid performance.

ESA President Herman Jele congratulated the two swimmers for their outstanding performances. “We are extremely proud of the swimmers’ accomplishment and progress in the sport. We have noted with great excitement the improvement of the two athletes in the sport.

We encourage them to continue working hard in other upcoming competitions,” he said. Jele further lauded swimmers for attending the competition in numbers.
