Two swimmers from Mashonaland and two from Matabeleland are competing in Durban at the KZN Champs and Commonwealth Trials.  Tonight on Day 1, Denilson Cyprianos broke the National 15 year old 100m Backstroke record (subject to confirmation) with a new time of 1.02.49 and got himself a Bronze medal.  Interestingly the silver medal in the 200 breaststroke went to a 15 year old Luan Grobbelaar who first rose to the podium at the Level 3 (SANJ) Champs as an 11 year old.  He swam almost every event in the programme and beat the 12 year olds at the event time and time again.  Definitely a star in the making.
