NMISF certifies two more age group records


Northern Mariana Islands Swimming Federation recognized two more CNMI age group marks made by Tsunami Swimming Center Saipan’s Ashley Dangol and Juhn Tenorio during the NMISF Opening Meet held early this month at the Kan Pacific Swimming Pool.

Dangol clocked in at 1:14.43 in the girls 11 to 12’s 100m backstroke, eclipsing by more than two seconds the previous mark of former Tsunami Saipan swimmer Miku Tammy. Tammy’s record read at 1:16.97 and was made on March 14, 2015.

With her new mark in the 100m backstroke, the 11-year-old Dangol now owns two records in her new age group. NMISF earlier recognized Dangol’s 50m backstroke mark (34.37 seconds) along with the record (2:33.42) of Nelson Batallones in the boys 13 to 14’s 200m butterfly and the 5:32.02 Saipan Swim Club’s Jinnosuke Suzuki registered in the boys 11 to 12’s 400m individual medley.

Dangol’s 1:14.43 was also the second fastest among the seven swimmers that completed the two-lap race. SSC’s Lennosuke Suzuki got the best time in the 100m backstroke with his 1:12.69, while his younger brother Jinnosuke was ranked third overall after submitting 1:14.95. Others who finished the race were Tsunami Saipan’s Ayumi Obligacion (1:33.37) and SSC’s Jin Ju Thompson (1:26.27), Sophia Gauran (1:28.80) and Anthony Camacho-Deleon Guerrero (1:24.27).

In the 50m backstroke, Tenorio logged 31.31 seconds and was the fastest among the 19 swimmers who did the sprint event. His time surpassed the 31.98 seconds former Tsunami Saipan swimmer Kaito Yanai posted on March 21, 2014 in the boys 13 to 14 age group.
