Miranda Renner shattered the Philippine record in women’s 50-meter butterfly after topping the preliminary race Tuesday morning in the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The Fil-American clocked 27.03 seconds to advance to the final events Tuesday afternoon, eclipsing the national mark of 27.09 made by Jasmine Alkhaldi at the 2019 SEAG in Capas, Tarlac.

Alkhaldi, meanwhile, also advanced to the medal round after finishing fifth in the heat with 27.49sec.

Renner guns for her second medal after winning the bronze medal in the 100m freestyle last Saturday.

The PH swimming team currently has one gold, one silver and one bronze medal.
