Report from Swimming NZ

This event was originally planned to run in Auckland. Unfortunately with the government’s COVID19 restrictions for the Auckland region, SNZ made the difficult decision to relocate the event to WaterWorld in Hamilton.

The KWA team was comprised of 6 swimmers – 3 female and 3 male swimmers, ages 13 to 18 years.

The results achieved by the Kiwi West team were:

  • 15 Age group medals (9 Gold,3 Silver,4 Bronze)
  • Our swimmers achieved six (6) other top 5 Finishes (every member of the team achieved at least 1 top 5 finish).
  • 5 Open Medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver, 3 Bronze)
