COOKTOWN swim star Maiika Hegamaea has done it again, smashing the Far North Queensland 25m freestyle record in Malanda earlier this month.
The seven-year-old swimmer from Cooktown Amateur Swimming Club broke a 13-year record for the 100m breaststroke in November and proved she wasn’t just a one-splash wonder, breaking the 15-year record at Malanda Short Course meet with a time of 17.64 seconds.
In addition to her record, Maiika, placed first in the 25m butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke.
Twenty-nine swimmers from Cooktown attended the meet, which featured nearly 150 competitors from 14 Far North Queensland clubs.
Other standout performers from Cooktown included Maia Pensio, Haila Hegamaea, Rudi Habermann, Mali Cooper and Jett Ryder.
