According to the Australian Swim Team on Facebook, a total of seven individual Australian Age records (plus relay records) have fallen at the 2012 Australian Age Championships until now, meet closing tomorrow, including 4 by the hands of 13-year-old Kyle Chalmers from Norwood South Australia. Watch him break the Boys 12-13 100 freestyle record in the video below, with a scorching 52.29 ahead of the rest in 55+ seconds. Via simma.nu/no
