Seven Medals and Countless PBs at 2022 NAGS

A team of eleven Otago athletes attended the 2022 New Zealand Age Group Swimming Championships, held at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre from 19-24 April. It was another great week of racing, with a ton of impressive swims and personal best times posted. Seven medals were won across the week, and 29 finals were swum by Otago athletes - with each and every Otago team member swimming in at least one final across the week of racing. What an awesome achievement for our region!
