2019 SCWC Regional Championships

This year's Swimming Canterbury West Coast Regional Championships were again held at Moana Pool in Dunedin, but this was the first time since the 2010 earthquakes forced us to head to Otago, that we have held this meet on our own- and it was a huge success!

The meet took place over 4 days and 8 sessions, with 210 swimmers from 15 clubs from around the Canterbury and West Coast Region making the trip south to compete for the 2019 Regional titles. They were joined by 35 visitors from the Southland and Otago regions.

A massive congratulations to all of our athletes on your amazing swims; with many fantastic PBs, National qualifying times, awesome medal winning individual swims and some very hotly contested relays, including a thrilling Hollander Cup contest- congratulations to the Wharenui Swim Club on taking it out for the 10th year in a row!

There were several outstanding performances during the Championships, and this year the format was altered to allow for a morning of heats followed by the evening session's finals. This included a Super Final for each event, where the overall winner for that event was crowned the Open Champion.
