81 Swimmers from Wellington competed in the New Zealand Short Course hosted in Auckland over the past 5 days, with many of them achieving new PBs and breaking both Wellington and New Zealand records.  
 

Mary Fisher (CAP) competed in three events over the week, including 50m Butterfly Para multi-class final where she placed first. She noted that this was the first time in 16 years she had swum this event. Mary also competed in the 100m backstroke as well as 50 breaststroke.  

Rebecca Moynihan achieved fantastic results through out the week, achieving two FINA world cup B final times allowing her the opportunity to head to China in December.   

Emma Robinson (Capital) continues to dominate distance swimming in New Zealand. Robinson went head to head with Otago’s Caitlin Deans (Neptune) for the first 200m before the Capital swimmer made her move, winning comfortably in 8:27.85s. 
“It was pretty tough at the 600m mark I was hurting a bit, the goal was to build every 200.” 
The Gold Coast based swimmer will now turn her focus to building for the 2019 FINA World Championships under the guidance of coach Chris Nesbitt. 

Thomas Watkins performed stunningly through out the meet, coming home with two New Zealand records. His first NZ record breaking swim was the 400 Individual Medley where he broke the record with a time of 4:16.12. His second broke Gareth Kean’s 200m backstroke record with a time of 1:55.88.  

Bronson Llyod placed 4th in 800m Freestyle with a time of 8:19.48. An oustanding achievement, placing behind swimmers ranging from 17 - 21 years of age.
