Talented swimmer Emma Nielsen broke a 43-year-old record as part of her show-stopping performance at Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre on Wednesday.

Nielsen was the headline act at Kooringal High School’s annual swimming carnival.

The Wagga Swim Club member broke four records in the senior girls division, some dating back as far as 1975 and 1988.

Liz Davies and Jess Absolum coordinated the swimming carnival and were full of praise of Nielsen’s efforts.

“To break four records was pretty awesome,” Davies said.

“Some of the records were from way back as well. She had been training quite hard recently too so it was good to see.”

Lawson House continued their dominance of the school’s sporting scene with yet another carnival victory.

Another highlight was the victory to the teachers in the staff versus students water polo match at the lunch break.

Davies said the carnival proved to be a great success.

“We had a fantastic day, numbers were up and it was just a really great atmosphere,” Davies said.

“It was a lot of fun, everyone had a great day.”
