Savannah and Kyle claim New Record Standards
The ESP swimmers selected to represent Ekhuruleni District gave everything they had, to swim their best times at the Small District “Interprovncial” held last weekend. Ekurhuleni were the overall winners, narrowly beating North West into second place. Mpumalanga took third place. Limpopo fourth, and Sasolburg Aquatics fifth.
Most of the ESP representatives were sick - but not one complained. They focused on the task ahead, and the job they had been selected to do. Savannah Mitchell (18) lowered her best time for the 100m breaststroke to a 1:14:88, setting a new record for this event. As Ladies Captain for this gala, she had no time for self pity!
Kyle McKenzie (15) matched her effort lowering his time for the 100m Breaststroke to 1:09:63 and also set a new record. Savannah ended the day with 1 gold and 3 silver medals. Kyle finished with a Bronze and Gold.
Murray Copeland (13) won bronze in the 200m Indivdual Medley. Bernalee Doster (12) silver in the 100m backstroke.
Ashleigh Stock and Colette Fourie were rewarded with silver for their effort in the medley relay.
