Bengal’s Swadesh Mondal set two new junior National records on the opening day of the sub-junior and junior National Aquatic Championships at the Basavanagudi Aquatic Centre on Tuesday.

In Group I boys’ category, Mondal bettered S.P. Likhith’s 100m breaststroke mark by nearly three-hundredth of a second, coming home in 1:05.47s. For his second new best timing of the day, he shaved more than a second off Neel Roy’s record in 200m IM, touching the pad in 2:08.88s.

In Group III girls’ category, Dhinidhi Desinghu set a new 200m freestyle record, winning in 2:14.94s, more than two-and-a-half seconds faster than Monique Gandhi’s timing from 2010.
