Although Victoria was not too successful in the swimming, this part of Tournament was interesting because several N.Z.U. records were broken. Besides Canterbury University's national champion A. Kindred slashing 7.3 secs, off the 440 yds. free style, other records broken were: 220 yds. medley relay - Otago; 2mins. 6.2 secs. 110 yds. freestyle M. Borrie; 57.5 secs. 110 yds. butterfly - M. Toomey; 1min. 2.6 secs. 220 yds. medley - B. Bond; 2 mins. 29.6 secs. Women's 220 yd. freestyle - H. Cambridge; 2mins. 39.2 secs.
All these record breakers represented Otago University. N. Hope of Victoria came third in the 110 yds. butterfly, the 110 yds. backstroke and the 220 yds. medley. Miss C. Spoor, also of Vic, came third in both the 220 yds. women's medley, and the women's 110 yds. breaststroke, while M. Haymen scored a second placing in the 110 yds. breaststroke.
Otago took the swimming shield, with Canterbury a close second.
