A record-breaking swim at the New Zealand Open Championships has seen the women’s 200-metre relay team qualify for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Emma Robinson, 19, knocked three and a half seconds off her personal best to propel her team past the notoriously tough qualification standards.

Robinson’s fast finish will be an exciting opportunity for her to compete in an senior international event.

“The only international experience I’ve had is at junior level in the Pan Pacific Games and Junior Commonwealth Games,” Robinson told ONE Sport today.
