The crowd roared as Wendy Quirk, Pointe Claire, Que., toppled the first record of last night finals, racing the 100-metre women's butterfly in The spectacular first-place finish trimmed a fraction of a second from the record she set earlier in the day in preliminary heats. Records were also broken by Pointe Claire, Que., Swim Club in 400-metre women's medley relay and by Vancouver's Canadian Dolphins Swim club in 400- metre men's medley relay.
