It didn’t take long for the first record to fall at the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Championships. U.S. swimmer Drew Kibler surged to a meet record in the men’s 200 freestyle, finishing in 1:47.65.

It wasn’t nearly as close as the women’s race as Kibler won by more than a second ahead of teammate Jake Magahey (1:48.67).

Japan’s Keisu Ishizaki finished third, followed by New Zealand’s Zac Reid (1:49.36), Japan’s Taikan Tanaka (1:49.72),

Australia’s Brendon Smith (1:51.30), Canada’s Justin Konik (1:52.80) and Australia’s Silas Harris (1:52.88).
