16-Year Old Anastasia Gorbenko Breaks Israeli Record in 400 IM

16-year old Anastasia Gorbenko has broken her own Israeli Record in the women’s 400 IM. Swimming on Friday at the Kiryat Bialik pool as part of the Millennium meet, she swam a 4:35.82.

That undercut her own record of 4:37.68 set a month ago at the Lewisville stop of the International Swimming League. The record previous to her Lewisville swim was a 4:40.11 set by Shahar Menachem in 2017.

Gorbenko also broke the Israeli Junior Record in the 50 breast with a 31.01. The old time belonged to Julia Banach, who swam 31.70 in 2008.

Gorbenko is entered to swim at this weekend’s European Short Course Championships in the 100 IM, 200 IM, 400 IM, and 200 breaststroke. In the 400 IM, she’s the 8th seed, but her new best time from Friday would jump her up to the 6th seed.

Gorbenko also holds open National Records in the 50 back, 100 back, 200 breast, 200 IM, and 400 IM in long course, as well as the 200 IM in short course. She also shares 4 national relay records.
