Ross Bragg named Life Member of Swimming NZ

[from the Swimming NZ website]

At the recent State Insurance 2012 Swimming New Zealand Awards, Ross Bragg was recognised for his 32 years of outstanding contribution to our sport and was created a Life Member of Swimming New Zealand.

Ross Bragg’s involvement with swimming began in 1980 supporting his daughters at the Nelson South Swimming Club. This led to both technical and administrative involvement with that club and then the Nelson Marlborough Region. Ross was president of Nelson Marlborough Swimming from 1988-90 and again from 1993-95.

From the late 1980s Ross began to have involvement at national level – again as both a technical official and also in the administration of the national body. He was vice president of the then New Zealand Swimming Federation from 1993-99 and also a member of the technical advisory committee.

1990 also saw the start of Ross’ involvement at international level, officiating at numerous events both in New Zealand and overseas. Ross is now Head of Officiating on the International Paralympics Committee.

Well done, Ross.
