New Zealand swimmers have won three medals and set four new national records on the second day of the Australian short course championships in Hobart.

The medals were all of different colours led by victory for Glenn Snyders in the 100 breaststroke with a silver to Corney Swanepoel in the 100 butterfly and bronze to Daniel Bell in the 100 backstroke.

Hayley Palmer continued on from her outstanding form in the recent world championships in Rome, qualifying sixth for the final of the 100 freestyle but setting two New Zealand records in the process.

The other New Zealand records went to Emily Thomas in the 100 backstroke while Swanepoel broke his own national mark in the butterfly final.
