Our Para swimmers, Celyn, George and Ieuan, also had an outstanding meet, accounting for 16 of the individual medals won at the event.

Exceptional swims by Celyn Edwards (Selwyn), competing in the S9 class, saw him better the New Zealand records in the 100m and 200m Individual Medley.

And George Adam(North Canterbury), put in a fantastic swim to claim the New Zealand record in the 100m butterfly in the S14 class.

Spots on the Swimming Canterbury West Coast relay teams are always hotly contested, and this meet was no exception. Our relay teams delivered 6 Gold, 6 Silver and 1 Bronze medal!


Congratulations to all SCWC athletes who took part and gave it their very best, and thank you to all the Coaches, Team Managers and all the volunteers- it couldn’t be done without you.
