Swimming Success for Noor & Daniel


At the end of January, both Daniel (Y8) and Noor (Y8) were part of the Wharenui Swimming Club team that competed in Ashburton at the Canterbury West Coast Junior Swimming Championships.

Out of the eleven races that Daniel swam, he won eight gold medals and three silver medals. In the last race of the meet, he was part of the Wharenui Relay Team who convincingly broke the 12 and under Canterbury medley relay record. Noor achieved a 4th placing in two of her races and was also part of a medley team that was came 2nd in their race.

During the past weekend, they were once again in the water, competing at the New Zealand Junior Swimming Championships in Dunedin.

Daniel followed on from his success at both the Canterbury/West Coast Junior Swimming Championships and the CGS Swimming Sports, by winning ten gold medals in the eight individual and two relay races that he competed in, and was unbeaten at the meet. Daniel has now cemented his place as the best 12-year-old male swimmer in the South Island, and one of the best in New Zealand. Congratulations Daniel, what an amazing achievement.

Noor also continued swimming in fine form and was placed 4th & 6th, clocking her personal best times in her races. Well done Noor, another commendable effort.
