The 2016 FINA Short-Course World Cup Series ended with Bermuda Olympian Julian Fletcher breaking Three Bermuda National Records.
Fletcher said, “My goal going into the three meets was to make a final. I'm pleased with the results, and 3 National Records but I feel that I could have improved if given the chance for a second swim in all my events.”
“I qualified to swim in finals at the last stop in Hong Kong in the 100m Breaststroke, as the first Bermudian to swim in a World Cup final. Swimming under National Record in the morning 1:01.57 put me in Lane 8 going into Finals,” continued Fletcher.
Fletcher finished 8th in the Final clocking 1:02.24
Fletcher went on to say, “Being the first Bermudian to compete at the World Cup was an incredible experience, and being able to represent Bermuda in Finals was special.”
Fletcher concluded, “National Records are always a great add-on to a successful meet, but I really had expected to swim faster, which shows me I have more room to improve before competing at the FINA World Championships Short Course in Windsor December 6th - 11th.
