A pair of FINA Masters World Records fell during day 1 of the 2015 FINA World Masters Championships in Kazan.

Dorothy Dickey of the Doncaster Dolphins in Australia lowered the women’s 85-89 800-meter freestyle world record with a time 16:45.59.

That swim surpassed the previous record of 16:48.12 set by Nan Bohl of the United States back in 2014.

Italy’s Fabio Calmasini of Team Sport Isola took down a 9-year-old world record in the men’s 45-49 800-meter freestyle with a time of 8:40.79.

That swim undercut the previous time of 8:42.85 clocked by Brazil’s Marcus Mattioli back in 2006.

Meanwhile, a pair of meet records also took a tumble.

Russia’s Anry Vereshagine of All Stars posted a 13:15.13 in the men’s 80-84 800-meter free, lowering the previous listed top time of 13:28.82.

Australia’s Denise Robertson of the Miami Masters Swimming Club claimed the women’s 80-84 800-meter free meet record with a time of 15:10.28. That’s lower than the listed top time of 16:15.77.
