BRAZIL-BOUND Michael Scott showed he is reaching his peak for the short course World Championships in Rio de Janeiro later this month with another record in the local age group meeting at the Kowloon Park pool yesterday. Scott, who set a new 100 metres breaststroke mark for boys 15 to 17 years on Saturday, yesterday bettered Tam Chi-kin's record in the 200 metres event with a time of two minutes and 25.50 seconds. Tam's 2:25.88 was set in August and the Sea Lion Aquatic Club ace had to be content with the silver medal for clocking 2:26.28. Both Ladies Recreation Club's Scott and Tam are in the team for the short course world event together with Szeto Shui-ki, Zachery Moffatt, Robyn Lamsam and Kristina Koehler. 'I'm very pleased with Michael's overall performance at this meeting and I'm looking for personal best times from all the others as well when we are in Brazil,' said national coach Chan Yiu-hoi. A newcomer to shine was Alan Cheung Man-tsun, who won seven gold medals in the boys' 11 and 12 age group during the two-day meeting. The Pacific Swimming Club representative also set a new age group record for the 200 metres freestyle with a winning time of 2:13.54, slashing 1.37 seconds off Albert Hau Yuen-cheong's mark. Ten-year-old Lee Wai-kwong got into the record book for the first time when he clocked 34.58 seconds for the 50 metres butterfly to improve Duncan Todd's 34.69 mark set in 1986. Ayako Nakamura, a leading light in the highly competitive girls' 13 and 14 years age group, overshadowed top rivals Koehler and Heidi Wong Hoi-tik with a record in the 200 metres butterfly. Nakamura's 2:26.45 bettered her own mark by 1.34 seconds. Koehler finished more than 10 seconds behind for the silver medal. The only other record yesterday went to Jennifer Ng Chi-kwon in the 50 metres freestyle for 10-and-under girls. She clocked 31.32 to beat Yvette Balla-Gow's mark by 0.33 of a second.
