Tammy Cunnington Sets PARA World Record In S4 50 Fly

2016 CANADIAN OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPIC TRIALS

This morning in the women’s PARA S1-7 50m fly Tammy Cunnington set a new world record in the S4 category, clocking a time of 53.10. That swim takes over three seconds off the previous world record of 56.36 set by Sandra Erikson of Sweden at the 2004 Paralympics in Athens.

Cunnington will have another crack at the record tonight, as she comes in as the top seed in the 50 fly final. She continues to perform well at these trials, having already won both the 50 breaststroke and the 150 IM.

The PARA 50 fly will take place at the end of the finals session tonight. Other events going off tonight will be the PARA 100 fly, women’s 200 fly, men’s 100 free, and women’s 200 IM. Finals can be streamed live on cbcsports.ca starting at 7 PM ET.
