ICAC Member Crushes Multiple World Records at Masters World Championships

The World Aquatics Masters Championships finished in Doha with nearly 2,600 athletes.

There were 21 Masters World Records and 91 meet records set.

The athletes came from 85 countries and competed in five aquatics disciplines, including the first male solo masters performance in artistic swimming and three women with Muslim religious backgrounds competing in a Hijab swim wear.

“Let us continue to inspire others through our unity through aquatic sports. We are UNITED by Water for Health, Life and Sport,” World Aquatics Masters Committee Chairperson Nadine Day said in her closing remarks. “Thank you, Doha, for hosting a truly unforgettable competition in these world class venues. Your contributions have been invaluable, and we bid a fond farewell to this remarkable chapter of our journey.”

She broke the world record in the 200-meter backstroke (2:30.58), 100 backstroke (1:10.22), 200 IM (2:34.27), 200 breaststroke (3:00.11) and 400 IM (5:30.07).
