Two more Paralympic world records and a further world qualifying performance highlighted the fourth night of finals at the National Swimming Championships in Auckland.

Sophie Pascoe bagged her third world record this week with victory in the 50 freestyle while fellow Paralympics gold medallist Mary Fisher smashed the 200 butterfly world mark in the heats, also her third of the meet.

Gareth Kean won the 50 backstroke title in a world championship qualifying time.

That takes the qualifiers for the world championships to five swimmers in 10 events.
