CC photo #45: Kristina Elin Thomsen took down 2 Faroese records this weekend


Kristina Elin Thomsen from Suðuroyar Svimjifelag is only 13 years old and not very tall at that, but still blew away two relatively long-standing Faroese senior records this weekend at the Ægir-meet in Klaksvík. First with a 2:25.36 in the 200 meter short course butterfly (yeah I know, we need to improve on that), and then with a 1:03.44 in the 100. The 200 butterfly was the longest standing record in our book, from May 2005, and the 100 butterfly from the supersuited days back in 2009.
