Records not available!
THE 35th MP State Swimming Championship that concluded today witnessed utter confusion. Shubha C of Indore claimed that she achieved a new national record in the 50-m butterfly and 50-m freestyle event but the organisers said that they were not sure because they did not have any records available at the moment. Shubha is a national record holder.
The event was organised by the MP Swimming Association. But it was strange the organisers had no information for the previous records. When asked, Jay Verma of the association said that the records would be available tomorrow. "We are not in a position to tell about the timings of the previous national records. We will tell you tomorrow", said Verma.
