He won the 200m individual medley in 2:20.82, setting a long course B.C. record. It bested his previous fastest time set earlier this year. The Coquitlam native also put in a new mark in the 1500m freestyle race, completing the swim in 17:41.48. It broke Andy Cho’s three-year-old mark of 17:42.51.

Jung would add another club record to his list, with a strong finish in the 100m breaststroke.

Also setting new Hyack records were Laon Kim, who took an eraser to an 18-year-old record in the male 10 and under 50m free. He also put up a new mark in the 200m breaststroke, finishing in 3:04.98.

Paul Orogo notched a new club time for the 11-12 boys 50m backstroke, finishing in 31.49 seconds.

Yolanda Ling, meanwhile, was a trendsetter for the Hyacks in the 11-12 girls 50m breast race with a time of 37.71.
