Edenvale swimmer Kyle McKenzie recently set a new event record while competing in the Circuito Nuoto Italia in Italy.
McKenzie set the record when he won a gold medal in the 200m Individual Medley event in the Pesaro leg of the competition.
In addition to setting a new record, the Edenvale High School learner also won a bronze medal in the 200m breaststroke.
In the Treviso leg, McKenzie lowered his own Eastern Gauteng record time by four seconds when he won a bronze medal in the 400m individual medley.
During the Treviso leg, McKenzie had a photo opportunity with South African and Hungarian Olympic swimmers Chad le Clos and Laszlo Cseh.
The Pesaro and Treviso events form part of the European swimming circuit and attract the top swimmers from across the world.
Earlier this year a number of swimmers from Gauteng were invited to the event.
