The best of luck to our 20 swimmers competing at the NZ Opens this week – starting tomorrow (Tuesday) and going through to Friday. This event is the qualifying event for the FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia in August this year and will also be one of the bases for selection for a number of NZ representative teams.
It is at West Wave and there will be some great racing so please come along and support the team if you can. The finals will also be broadcast live on Sky Sport 4 from 7pm each evening.
In addition to our Auckland based swimmers it is exciting to see a number of swimmers returning for the event: Lauren Boyle - currently training in Queensland, Georgia Marris and Alex Peach - both training on university programmes in the US and Max Polianski who is at the High Performance programme at the Millennium Institute.
