South Surrey swimmer shatters record

Pacific Sea Wolves' Edwin Zhao breaks two B.C. records at Richmond's Fastswim meet.

Pacific Sea Wolves swimmer Edwin Zhao is a new provincial record-holder, after smashing a pair of old marks in the pool at Richmond last weekend.

On Saturday, the second day of competition at the Richmond Fastswim meet, Zhao set a new 13/14-year-old B.C. record in the 1,500-m freestyle event with a time of 15 minutes, 52.7 seconds, crushing the old mark by more than 20 seconds.

On Sunday night, he set another new standard for his age group, this time in the 400-m freestyle. His time of 4:02.56 edged the old record by 0.3 seconds.

In addition to the provincial records, Zhao also set new Pacific Sea Wolves club records in the 100-, 200-, 400- and 1,500-m freestyle events.

Mason Lin, also in the 13/14 boys age division, also set a new PSW mark in both the 50- and 200-m breaststroke, while Darren Yuan, in the same division, set a new club standard in the 50-m butterfly.
