Swim sensation Kevin Paul clocked his second world record in as many days in the final session of the swimming competition at the Nedbank Championships for the Physically Disabled, presented by the SA Sports Association for Physically Disabled, at the Gelvandale swimming pool in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday night.
Competing in the S9 classification, having been born without his left pectoral muscle and a smaller left hand and shorter left arm, local boy Paul combined speed, rhythm and power to clock a world best of 32.09sec in the 50 metres breaststroke ÔÇô inside the previous world mark of 32.49.
This effort followed hiss world record of 2:30.89 in the 200m breaststroke clocked on Monday’s opening day of the annual sports showpiece.
Over 800 physically disabled and visually impaired athletes from 12 regional associations are striving for glory at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University on the athletics, swimming, archery, football, goalball, boccia and powerlifting fronts.
