Ninety-one records were broken during Pembrokeshire County Swimming's recent Open Meet at Haverfordwest Leisure Centre.
The third annual Open Meet drew more swimmers than previous years, with teams mainly from the South West Wales Region.
There were a total of 14 clubs, 148 individual swimmers and over 900 swims. Medals were presented to those swimmers achieving 1st - 3rd places.
"The venue is proving popular and supportive comments were received from the clubs, saying what a friendly well, organised event it was," said Paul Dowey, Swimming Development Coach for Pembrokeshire County Council.
"The Meet gives the opportunity for swimmers to take part and achieve times in events they would not normally get an opportunity to swim in, and something to aspire to by seeing more experienced swimmers in the pool.
"For many it is the first step onto the British rankings and to gain times so they can to enter higher levels of competitions or even competing in their first open meet."
This year new events were introduced into the competition for swimmers with a disability.
"There were favourable comments on this, with clubs wanting to return again to next year's meet with more swimmers," said Paul Dowey.
Organisation of the event was by volunteers from the Pembrokeshire swimming clubs. The Meet was held a week earlier than normal due to Swim Wales hosting the Celtic Tri Nation competition at the WNP Swansea, in which many of Pembrokeshire swimmers took part in
Presentations were made to the swimmers achieving the most points over the two days. The results were as follows:
Best boy Level 1 Ross Sutton of Pembroke & District; best girl Level 1 Elin Gordan of Nofio Sir Gar; best boy Level 3 Caleb O'Neil of Tenby & District; best girl level 3 Alison Sharratt of Pembroke & District.
