Team Palau finished with SEVEN National Records at the XV Pacific Games!

Tonight wrapped up with only two races, yet setting three national records led by Noel and UB.  Noel dropped 1:12 in the 1500 Free with a blazing 18:38 getting a fifth place finish in the event.  In the race, he actually broke his own 800 Free National record with a 9:58 going out in the 1500.  UB had a good 200 Fly breaking her own National Record by 5 seconds swimming a 3:03 in the event.  With that effort she placed sixth in the event which is the highest placing for her at the meet. 

Ikelau swam a beauty in the 200 back dropping 15 seconds from her short course time with a 3:17.

Even though the pool competition is completed, Team Palau will be taking their skills into the ocean where they will compete in the 5k Open Water swim tomorrow morning.  Shawn, Noel, UB, and Roylin are swimming the event competing against 30 other swimmers from eight different countries.

All in all though, it has been an absolute incredible meet for these five swimmers.  With 26 for 28 best times total and having seven National Records set, this meet really showed how well the team has trained and focused for this prestigious event.

Keep cheering us on back home Palau, LAST ONE FAST ONE!!!
