Otago Senior LC Champs and Junior Carnival Recap

Over the weekend was our regional Senior Long Course Championship and Junior Long Course Carnival. It was all-round a great three day event, with over 150 athletes from Otago, Southland, Canterbury, and even Wellington in attendance.


First and foremost, Swimming Otago would like to thank the volunteers that made the event possible. From those who gave up their time before and after the meet to set up and pack up equipment, to those officials who showed up session after session - without you, these meets would not be able to go ahead at the official or approved standard. Same goes for timekeepers - thank you to all those within our community that did their part for their club and swimmers by volunteering to help, it is greatly appreciated.


Over the weekend a number of PBs were lowered, and medals, ribbons and trophies were won. Congratulations and well done to all those who competed! We hope you had an enjoyable and rewarding weekend.


Four Otago records were broken at Moana Pool over the weekend. Congratulations to Bella McEntyre for breaking three records in the 10years Girls’ 50m, 100m, and 200m Freestyle. Congratulations to Neo Salomonsson for breaking the 11years Boys’ 50m Backstroke record. Amazing results from you both.
