Teen sets new swimming record

HCM CITY (VNS) — Long An resident Tran Thi Hong Cam, 13, stormed to first place in the women's 800m freestyle clocking a time of nine minutes 1.55 second to set a new record at the National Short-Course Swimming Championship in Hue City yesterday.

Cam cracked the old record of 9:2.36, set by Le Thi My Thao of Binh Phuoc last year. The time was the only record clocked on the second day of the championships.

Thao yesterday finished in third place with a time of 9:14.07.

Earlier, Da Nang's Hoang Quy Phuoc pocketed three more gold medals to mark his collection of six titles at the championship.

Phuoc dominated the men's individual 50m freestyle, and the 100m butterfly race before winning the men's 800m freestyle relay.

Nguyen Thi Kim Tuyen of HCM City, who bagged three golds on the opening day, added two more golds yesterday.

Tuyen came first in the women's 100m individual medley in 1:6.02, and 50m butterfly in 28.71.

Da Nang continued to lead the medal tally with six golds, a silver and a bronze, while HCM City trailed with six golds and three bronzes. — VNS
