Dominic Sets New British Record
Tuesday, 24 April 2012
Year 9 pupil Dominic Walker has set a new British U14 50m backstroke record.
Dominic broke the previous record with a time of 28.68s at the Lancashire County Championships.
Starting swimming at just 5 years of age, Dominic, who swims for Preston Swimming Club, has been swimming at this level since age 11. He hopes to set another British record for 100m backstroke when he competes at Manchester Aquatics Centre in May as he is only half a second away from beating the current record.
