Despite the UAAP’s harassment, Claire, with the help of friends and supporters, was eventually able to compete in the September 19 UAAP swim meet, where she won FOUR gold medals, TWO silver medals, and set TWO new UAAP records for the fastest times in the 400-meter freestyle and 200-meter backstroke. Claire is the current record holder for the women's 100-meter and 50-meter backstroke.
