Valiant Karnataka finish runners-up

However, Karnataka swimmers can take solace from claiming second place, bettering the third-place finish last year in Bangalore by climbing above Tamil Nadu in the overall standings. Maharashtra tallied 360 points, 70 more than Karnataka. Damini K Gowda (Group III girls) and N Sri Hari (Group IV boys) were adjudged the best swimmers in their respective categories. Karnataka swimmers also took home the Group III girls’ and Group IV boys’ team championship titles.

On the concluding day, Damini completed a treble when she powered to victory in the 50M backstroke in 34.60 seconds while S Siva pocketed the corresponding boys’ title, clocking 34.25. The Karnataka 4x50M medlay relay quartet of Siva, Spandan Pratik Rath, Manish Chandra V and Sanjeev R clinched another gold in 2:14:91.
