London Borough of Redbridge SC member, Mathuri Karunakaran, participated in this year’s National Championships in Sri Lanka. This is her second trip to these championships and she won two gold and three silvers and broke another national record and selected for National Training Team.
In the 200 back, Mathuri swam to a lifetime best finishing in a time of 2.42. What was even more impressive was that this was a national record. In the 100 event, she achieved another best time, finishing second in a time of 1.16.
In the 400IM, even though Mathuri was off of her PB, she still won the under 16 age group. In the 400 free, she finished 2nd (even though her goggles came off!!) and second in the 200 free.
Mathuri has now been selected as part of the National Training Team and will compete again in December with the objective of qualifying foe the South Asian Games which will be held in DehliGo Back
