Luxembourg’s Carnol, Iceland’s Luthersdottir break meet records on day 3 of Small Nation Games

Meet records continued to shatter on day 3 of Europe’s Small Nation Games, with Laurent Carnol and Hilda Luthersdottir each taking down a 100 breast mark.

Carnol, competing for Luxembourg, went 1:01.24 to chop well over a second off the men’s meet record of 1:02.60. He won the event by a longshot over Iceland’s Anton McKee (1:02.81).

McKee’s Icelandic teammate Luthersdottir won the women’s race, and pulled off a meet record of her own with a 1:08.07. That also just sneaks under her own Icelandic record, which formerly stood at 1:08.19.

Luxembourg’s Julie Meynen just barely missed her own national and meet records in winning the 50 free. The 17-year-old was 25.72 for the win; the old meet record was 25.59 and her national record stands at 25.57.

The 50 frees were a Luxembourg sweep, with Julien Henx taking the men’s race. He was 23.17, not far off his own national record of 23.03.

The men’s 200 free also went to Luxembourg, with Raphael Stacchiotti going 1:51.34. His teammate Jean-Francois Schneiders was second in a 1-2 Luxembourg sweep.

Liechtenstein’s Julia Hassler won the women’s 200 free in 2:02.61, barely touching out Monique Olivier of Luxembourg. Olivier was 2:02.75. Hassler just missed her own national record in the event.

The men also competed in the 4×100 medley relay, with Luxembourg topping three other teams in 3:43.75.
