MORGAN HILL, California, March 30. IF you didn't purchase a ticket to watch our pay-per-view live stream of the finals of the 2012 Far Western championships yesterday, you missed out on some fast swimming — and six meet records broken — on the first day of competition.

Three of the records were set in individual events, while three were set in relay action:

Austin Nguyen, Pacific Swim: Boys 11-12 200 yard breaststroke — 2:17.87 (old record 2:18.32)

Morganne McKennan, Quicksilver Swimming: Girls 13-14 200 yard breaststroke — 2:15.30 (old record 2:17.61)

Audrey Lukawski, Koret Youth Swim Club: Girls 10 & Under 100 yard breaststroke — 1:09.96 (old record 1:10.37)

Crow Canyon Swim Club: Girls 13-14 400 medley relay — 3:52.76 (old record 3:56.37)

Palo Alto Stanford Aquatics: Boys 13-14 400 medley relay — 3:39.41 (old record 3:40.90)

Pacific Swim: Boys 11-12 400 medley relay — 4:03.53 (old record 4:05.23)

Some of the best 18-and-under swimmers from the western United States (as well as a few from Texas), are at this meet, where some of the best swimmers in history got their start. Natalie Coughlin, Summer Sanders, Michael Phelps and Pablo Morales are just a few Olympians who previously competed here. We could be seeing a few future Olympians in this year's meet, and by purchasing a ticket to watch our pay-per-view stream, you could say, “I saw them swim back in the day!”

The cost to watch all sessions is $15.95. You can order your ticket to watch all the finals by clicking here.

Finals will start no earlier than 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time each day.
