Jewel claims two golds in National Swimming
Mohammad Jewel Ahmed continued his fine form in the 28th National Swimming Championship as the Bangladesh Army swimmer claimed two more gold medals in the second day, including a new national record, at Mirpur Swimming Complex on Monday. A total of four new national records were set in the penultimate day of the competition, including Jewel breaking his own previous record in the men's 400metre personal medley event. He clocked 4:52.15s to touch the finishing line. The previous record was 4:52.22s, set by the same athlete in 2012. Jewel clinched his fourth gold in the men's 200m backstroke event. Meanwhile, Bangladesh Army swimmer Romana Akter set a new national record in the women's 400m personal medley. She clocked 5:47s to win the gold medal, as well as bettering her previous record of 5:55s, set two years ago. It was Romana's third gold in the event. Bangladesh Navy swimmer Nazma Khatun broke Sabura Khatun's six-year record in the women's 400m freestyle event. She took 5:07s to finish top. Another new record was made in the women's 4*100m freestyle relay where Nazma, Sonia Akter, Mahfuza Khatun and Lima Akter were too good for their opponents. They clocked 4:25s. Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Navy are dominating the medal standings heading into the third and final day on Tuesday. Both the service teams have bagged nine golds each. Bangladesh Army however, have 11 silver and six bronze medals against Bangladesh Navy's six silver and seven bronze medals respectively.
