A power outage delayed the start of day 2 at the Brazilian Winter Children’s Championships by 45 minutes, but the country’s 13- and 14-year-old athletes still took down three meet records during the session.
The meet is divided into two categories for each gender: Children I (age 13) and Children II (age 14).
The records in both categories went down for the boys 200 free. Fluminense’s Victor Hugo de Oliveira won the younger age group, going 2:04.05. That knocked off the mark Vinicius Augusto da Silva set last year at 2:04.15.
Not to be completely eradicated from the record books, da Silva swam in the older age group and broke the 200 free record there. The Corinthians swimmer went 1:59.03 to take a half-second off the mark.
Finally, Fluminense got a second record with Maria Pessanha‘s swim in the girls 200 back Children II. Her 2:22.61 cracked the record set just one year ago of 2:22.92.
