Aon NZ Short Course Championships

National Short Course 2019 kicked off on Tuesday October 1st with 73 swimmers from the Wellington area travelling to Auckland for 5 days of competing. 8 clubs from the region attended the meet with a good mix of first-timers alongside those competing at their third or fouth NZSC.

41 medals in total were handed out to Wellingtonians with Jack Plummer coming away with the biggest medal tally as he sprinted his way to podium finishes in the 50, 100 and 200 events. Lea Muellner’s breastroke again impressed, as it has done all year, chasing down the prolific Breana Crawford and picking up a national age group record and the silver in the 50m A final. Bronagh Ryan, Tori Grout and Julia Borlase all put in great swims in the A, B & C finals in the same event.

  

Sophie Irving (200 Back) and Georgia Wills (200 Fly) came away with age group gold medal finishes as they begin to establish themselves amongst the best in the country. Timothy Cherry’s first national championship saw the 13yr old win 2 silver and 2 bronze medals as he continues to push for regional records in his age group.

     

Irving (3), Muellner (2) and Plummer (1) posted new regional records to go with Muellner’s national record in the 50 Breast and there was significant PB’s for Ruby Heath and Alexander Cecioni in the 800m and again from Heath in the 1500m.

A great way to conclude Short Course season as we lead into Long Course season towards the end of October.
