Andrea Mallia clocks new national record in the 200m breaststroke in Slovakia

Maltese swimmers continued with their bright performances on the final day of the Slovakia Swimming Cup.

During the third day of competition, Andrea Mallia set a new national short course record in the men’s 200 metres breaststroke event when clocking a time of two minutes 19.45 seconds.

His effort was almost 0.7 seconds faster than his own previous national best he had set in Dublin in December 2021.

For the Maltese contingent, this was the fourth national short course national record set in Slovakia last week.

In fact, Sasha Gatt has set new national benchmark in the 1,500 metres as well as lowering the 800 metres freestyle record twice in a row.

In all, Malta’s participation in the 2022 Slovakia Swimming Cup yielded a total of 58 personal best times with nearly all swimmers qualifying for the semi-final, as well as the final events for their specific strokes.

The Maltese squad will return to Malta on Monday afternoon.
