Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 14th 2009
46 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 15, 2009 MB SPORT www.innerwestweekly.com.au Teen breaks Thorpe record Kenneth To practises in the pool at Trinity Grammar. TRINITY Grammar School swim- ming sensation Kenneth To has blitzed the field in Boys 16-years events at the State Age Champion- ships at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. The Ashbury swimmer finished with a haul of six gold medals and he provisionally broke the Aust- ralian age record for the 200m individual medley. Last Wednesday night Kenneth, the favourite, was red hot in the finals of the 200m event and annihilated swimming legend, Ian Thorpe's 10-year-old Australian age record, clocking 2:04.31. Kenneth cruised in the heats session to qualify in lane four. With a seed time of 2:06.08, he had to step up to the challenge if he was to claim gold and chase the great Thorpedo's Australian re- cord set in 1999. The Year 12 student was un- touchable and, with his nearest rivals at least a body length be- hind, he stormed home in the final lap. His time also established a new NSW State and All Comers record. ''It felt good breaking the re- cord,'' Kenneth said. ''It was one of my aims at the start of the season so it is good to eventually achieve that goal.'' The Inner-West Weekly 2007 Jun- ior Sports Star also swam the 100m butterfly to collect another gold that night. On Thursday night Kenneth won gold medals in the 100m freestyle with a time of 51.87 and the 100m breaststroke in 1:04.11. And on Friday night he grabbed two more gold -- in the 50m freestyle with a time of 23.34 and the 200m breaststroke with 2:20.52. The teenager is looking forward to racing the international stars at this week's Australian Youth Olympic Festival at Sydney Olympic Park. ''I am very excited for the event, going up against all the inter- national competition and countries I haven't raced before,'' he said. ''I have had a good preparation. I raced well at the NSW champion- ships so I feel confident about how I will go this week. Hopefully I can swim some personal bests and see how we go from there." Kenneth believes the festival will give him a brilliant oppor- tunity to eventually reach the Australian Olympic team. ''Making the Olympics is a dream for me that I am going to be working towards,'' he said. ''The event is meant to be a replica of the Olympics and is a great step- ping stone for making the Olympic team in 2012 and after that.'' Swimming sensation FELLOW Trinity Grammar School swimmer Riley Innes stamped his mark on the state championships with dual gold in the pool last Wednesday night. Matching his previous stellar performances to bag two golds over the previous few days at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre pool, young Riley was ready to continue this success. Riley was unwavering in his pursuit for the Boys 13 Years 400m gold and clocked 4:21.09. He also collected another im- pressive gold in the 200m indi- vidual medley. Riley was on fire again on Thursday night to land another gold, this time for the 100m backstroke. He easily qualified as the fastest athlete and set alight the night with his blitzing 1:03.36 performance. That night he also won bronze in the 50m freestyle. On Friday night, he grabbed another gold in the 200m back- stroke with 2:17.76 and came second in the 100m butterfly.
