MBABANE – Luca Frazer did not only win seven gold medals in the Mpumalanga Swimming Championships but broke three records in the boys 11-12 age group.

The championships were held in Nelspruit, South Africa (SA) over the past weekend, where Swim Lab Swimming Club managed to scoop 11 gold, 10 silver and four bronze medals totalling 25. The 12-year-old Luca was also presented with a trophy to celebrate his excellence as the best performing visitor in the competition that also featured swimmers from SA’s various provinces as well as Mozambique.

Luca broke a 27-year-old 50 metre freestyle record previously held by C. Harmse of 29.27 seconds with a new personal best (PB) of 28.99 seconds. He progressed to set a new record of 36.10 seconds in the 50 metre backstroke, beating N. Du Plessis’s 36.24 seconds record that had been unbeaten since the year 2000.

Achievement

Luca’s third achievement in the tightly contested championships was breaking the 200 metres breaststroke record time held by C. Haulley in 2010 at 3.10.02 minutes, only for Luca to set the bar with a record finishing time of 3.02.07. Swim Lab Coach Welcome Nhlabatsi, who led the team to Mpumalanga with the support of Viva Water Company, congratulated the swimmer for the remarkable achievement, highlighting that Luca had broken three records during the Eswatini Swimming Association’s Age Group Gala held a fortnight ago at Enjabulweni School.
“Well done to Luca. We are very proud of him and his achievements. He also became the best visiting swimmer of the competition,” Nhlabatsi said. ESA President Herman Jele also marvelled at the junior champion, who continues to achieve greatness in his swimming journey at an early age.
