The Hyack Swim Club pulled off a rare feat on Saturday at the BC Provincial Winter Championships in Kamloops, as they saw two of their swimmers, one male and one female, break the 11-12 National Age Group Records in the same event.

Madisen Jacques and Peter Huang, both 12, both lowered the 11-12 record in the 100m butterfly. Huang initially broke the boys mark in prelims, clocking 1:01.19, before bringing it down even further to 1:00.66 in finals. His best time coming into the meet was a 1:04.16 done in January.

Jacques, who came into the meet with a similar best time at 1:04.91, cruised into finals with a 1:05.97 before sneaking under the record by .01 at night, posting a time of 1:03.67.

Both swimmers were swimming in the 14-and-under category as 12-year-olds, with Huang placing 5th and Jacques winning the gold medal. Huang broke an 11-year-old record held by Edward Liu (1:01.65) of the Toronto Swim Club from 2007, while Jacques broke Danika Huizinga (1:03.68) of the Golden Horseshoe Aquatic Club’s record from 2012.

In addition to the 100 fly mark, Huang also took down the 200 fly record earlier in the meet, clocking 2:11.22 to shatter the mark of Ray Yang (Etobicoke Swim Club) from 2013, set at 2:14.28. Huang would go onto win bronze in the final in 2:11.62. He also came within 2 seconds of the 400 free record (4:15.89), going 4:17.85 for 10th overall.

Both swimmers are coached by Hyack Assistant Head Coach Andrew Lennstrom.

Jacques added a bronze as well in the 200 fly, going 2:25.07, and was also 3rd in the 200 IM (2:23.80). Both of those records are decades old, with the 200 fly (2:18.09) from 1978 and the 200 IM (2:19.25) from 1985.

Update: Huang added another record on Sunday, breaking the 800 free record in 8:52.66 to place 4th. The previous record belonged to Etobicoke’s Charlie Kwinter (8:55.14), set last July.

Results page list this as short course? In which case these aren’t records according to marks on swimmingcanada website (at least on the boys side, the girls 100 fly seems legit)

The men’s records you listed seem to be from long course
