New Zealand Open Water Championships

Congratulations to Liam Albery who picked up Bronze in the open 10km and 5km New Zealand Open Water Championship at Lake Taupo on 10 and 11 January.

Congratulations also to Ben Ruback who was placed fifth in the open 5km swim and fifth in the open 10km swim and Hamish Trlin who took bronze in the male 16-17 category of the 10 km swim and bronze in the open 5km swim.

Special mention should go to young Capital swimmer Loredana Unsworth who took on the Epic 10km swim finishing first in the female 13-15 category and seventh female overall – an amazing achievement!

The Championships are part of the Epic Swim event and are the first stepping stone in the process towards qualifying for the FINA World Championships in Russia in late July.
