Four Otago Athletes Recognised as International Qualifiers

Swimming New Zealand would like to recognise athletes as members of teams for Oceania, World University Games and World Junior Championships in the normal fashion, as in past years. SNZ would also like to recognise those who would have been selected for the 2020 Junior Pan Pacific Championships Team.


Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of many Domestic and International meets over 2020, athletes did not have an opportunity to record times that would potentially see them selected for NZ Teams. Many of these events have since been cancelled, and those that are still going ahead Swimming NZ are not set to send a team away due to the current climate.


Congratulations to the following Otago athletes whom achieved the selection standards detailed in the following international events...

2021 World University Games:
- Caitlin Deans (400, 800, 1500 Freestyle)
- Luan Grobbelaar (200, 400 Individual Medley)

2021 Oceania Championships:
- Caitlin Deans (200, 400, 800, 1500 Freestyle)
- Ruby Heath (200 Freestyle)
