Swimmers were making waves with a number of record breaking feats at the Pioneer 79 Club championships at Hyndburn Sports Centre over the weekend.
Fifteen swimmers chalked up new club records as Pioneer 79 continues to go from strength to strength.
Karmen Hammonds broke the record which had stood for the longest when she smashed the 26-year record in the girls 200m Individual Medley for 13 and 14-year-olds.
It had been held by Tracey Beswick since 1984 with 2min 33.22sec but Karmen took more than a second off it with a time of 2.32.13.
Karmen was one of the stars of the show as she also got a new record in the Girls 200m Freestyle and in the Girls 100m Butterfly.
And, for a fourth record, she broke the 100m Girls Backstroke by almost two seconds with 1.06.92.
That was a record which had been held for three years by team-mate Charlotte Britland.
But Charlotte won’t have minded losing that record as she got two more of her own.
She bettered her own 100m Ladies Backstroke one, set last year, with 1.07.20 and recorded the fastest time in the Ladies Open 200m Individual Medley by half a second.
There were plenty more records which fell by the wayside in a competitive weekend.
For the boys, Connor Makin also smashed four records in the Boys 13/14 age category.
First up, he raced to victory in the 100m Breaststroke with 1.10.60 and knocked three seconds off the Boys 200m Freestyle with 2.04.20.
Then, in the 100m Freestyle, he celebrated 57.54 and chalked up a record 2.21.92 in the 200m Individual Medley – smashing the previous record by almost five seconds.
It was a double record for Thomas Baynes in the Under eight Boys 25m Backstroke and Breaststroke – both of the previous records had been held for around a decade.
Jacob Waddington was also a double record holder when he won the Under eight Boys 25m Butterfly and then he equalled the Under eights Boys 25m Freestyle time.
Richard Eccles starred in the Open Mens 100m Freestyle with 55.10 – beating a record that had been held for 10 years by Chris Pratt.
