Swimming Nelson Marlborough sent 7 swimmers to the National Age Group Champs in Wellington last week: Ellie Rukuwai (13), Skye Eden (14), Grace Woodall (15), Kaiori McGuinnety (16) and Ryan Cheyne (17), all from Nelson South, and William Borrell (14) and Fraser Neill (15) from Nelson Swimming Club.
Almost everyone got personal bests, Ellie, William, Fraser and Ryan made finals, and Ellie came 3rd in 50 breast and 2nd in 100 breast. The boys regional 200 medley relay team also made the finals despite competing in the 16 & over age group with two under-age swimmers.
William, Fraser, Ryan, Grace and Ellie set Nelson Marlborough long course records (subject to ratification). A fantastic set of results.
Congratulations to our swimmers and coaches!
