OVERNIGHT leaders Selangor maintained their impressive form on the eighth day of the Pahang SUKMA by leading the rest of the pack.
Selangor amassed 10 gold, 8 silver and 10 bronze medals to lead second-placed Sarawak, who have 7 gold, 3 silver, 7 bronze while Penang are third on 6 gold and 4 bronze medals.
Swimming competitions which opened yesterday saw three SUKMA records sunk in the Wisma Belia Aquatics Complex pool at Indera Mahkota with Selangor fishing out three gold medals.
Selangor's Caroline Chan set the pace by winning the 50m backstroke en route to setting a new national record by clocking 30.34 seconds to erase the old record of 30.39s held by Chui Lai Kwan.
The other two records were set by Christina Loh in the women's 100m breaststroke and Ian James Barr through the men's 50m backstroke.Bernama
