On the final day of the Spanish Summer Open, C.N. Sabadell emerged victorious in the men’s meet, while C.N. Sant Andreu won the women’s team title handily. Both teams set relay records on the final day of the meet as well.

The C.N. Sant Andreu women’s 400 medley relay team of Africa Zamorano, Jessica Vall, Alba Guillamon, and Lidon Muñoz teamed up to win the event in 4:03.58. The time marked a new Spanish Club Record and Spanish Open Record, both of which stood at 4:03.84. The time was also just 1.2 seconds off the Spanish National Record of 4:02.38, which was set at the European Championships this year.

Here are the splits from that relay:

Two teams broke records in the men’s 400 medley relay. The French team of Clement Bidard (56.03), Carl Aitkaci (1:01.26), Thomas Piron (52.74), and Guillame Guth (48.93) won the event in 3:38.96. That time broke the Spanish Open Record. Coming in 2nd was the C.N. Sabadell team of Diego Mira (56.41), Carles Coll (1:01.38), Alex Ramos (52.87), and Sergio de Celis (48.81) posted a final time of 3:39.47. C.N. Sabadell broke the Spanish Club Record with the swim.

The records didn’t end there, however, as 3 swimmers broke individual records on the final day of the meet. In the women’s 200 IM, C.N. Sabadell’s Catalina Corro won the event in 2:13.43, breaking the Championship Record. Corro put together a strong performance in the middle 100, splitting 33.89 on backstroke, and 38.73 on breaststroke.

16-year-old Emma Carrasco (C.E. Inef de Lleida) came in 2nd in the race with a 2:14.66. The swim marks a Junior Championship Record, for Carrasco.

C.N. Santa Olaya’s Cesar Castro, 22, broke the Championship Record en route to winning the men’s 200 free. Castro swam a 1:47.31, touching just shy of his personal best of 1:47.13, which stands as the Spanish National Record.
