    Jessie King Lacuna is The Fastest Filipino Swimmer



    Jessie Lacuna is now the fastest male filipino swimmer as he broke the record of Miguel Molina in the 200-meter freestyle of the 2010 Singapore National Age Group Swimming Championships at the Singapore National Age Group Swimming Championships. He is just a 16 year old kid who dreams of becoming an Olympian someday. He swam 50.90 seconds to break the Philippine record of 1 minute 51.75 seconds.



    Here is a news from the source GMANEWS.TV:

    Jessie King Lacuna proved he is the heir apparent to top Filipino swimmer Miguel Molina after breaking the Philippine record in the 200-meter freestyle in Day 2 of the 2010 Singapore National Age Group Swimming Championships at the Singapore School Sports.

    The tournament serves as a Youth Olympic Games qualifying event with the 16-year-old Lacuna also surpassing the FINA YOG "A" Standard time.

    Lacuna swam to a time of one minute and 50.90 seconds to break the Philippine record of 1:51.75 established by Molina in the 2007 Thailand Southeast Asian Games. The new mark also surpassed the FINA YOG “A" Standard time of 1:52.53.

    The Bulacan-born Lacuna’s time is faster by more than two seconds to Mark Chay’s 1:53:78 record during the 1999 edition of the annual swim meet.

    Lacuna made it to the 200m finals Friday night with the Filipino tanker the heavy favorite to win the gold medal since closest rival Haruki Washio of Japan had the second best time of 1:54.06.
