Paralympics stars Sophie Pascoe and Mary Fisher have set world records on the third morning of the New Zealand Swimming Championships in Auckland.

Pascoe and Fisher both broke their own world records in their respective classes of the 50 butterfly.

US-based Glenn Snyders went under the qualifying time for the world championships when he topped qualifiers in the heats of the men's 50m breaststroke.

In other swims world champion Lauren Boyle topped qualifiers in heats of the women's 200m freestyle... she's the only swimmer under the two minute mark for tonight's finals.
