WAGGA athlete Carly Salmon continued her record-breaking streak at NSW All Schools Carnival at Homebush on Saturday.

Backing up her impressive feats from the NSW Combined Catholic Schools’ carnival last month, Salmon eclipsed the world record on three occasions.

Salmon eventually leapt 3.48 metres, that bettered the world record for F35 Para athletes by over a metre. The old record was 2.29m.

Unfortunately for a few technical reasons, the world records won’t be recognised, although Salmon is likely to be accredited with the Australian under-18, 20 and open records.

The Mater Dei Catholic College student has her sights set on the Paralympics in 2020.
