Speedy Anita races to top of rankings
A SUPER-FAST swimmer has been ranked national number one in eight different races.
Anita Tien, aged just eight, rewrote the latest standings after a dominant performance in Norfolk.
Competing in ten races, the Clacton Swimming Club youngster returned with eight golds and one silver medal at the UEA City of Norwich Swimming Club (CONSC) event.
In all bar one, she produced the best national standard times for her eight-year-old girls’ category, in the last 12 months.
Her time in the 50 metres backstroke even registered at number seven in the all-time Amateur Swimming Association records.
Although Clacton Swimming Club is her home club, Anita, from Great Holland, is a link swimmer at CONSC.
This was her first official licensed level four meeting since joining.
“We’re very proud of Anita,” said mum Kun Zhao.
