Swimmers break slew of records at national junior championships

A number of records were broken at this year’s national junior swimming competition held in Ha Long in northern Vietnam this month.

The swimmer from the southern Long An Province achieved a time of 5 minutes 0.6 seconds, almost a second faster than the previous record of 5 minutes and 1.45 seconds set by star swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien in 2011.
