Our guy Magnus Jákupsson managed to swim a new Faroese record of 25.00 in the 50 butterfly this morning at the 2011 European Junior Swimming Championships in Belgrade, qualifying for the semi-finals this afternoon in 12th best time. He swam in the very first heat, having no official long-course time since last year because of our problems with having no long-course pool in the Faroe Islands. Magnus is only a first-year junior yet.
