Kyle Mckenzie finished the season on a well deserved high. He was awarded both the President’s Trophy and the EGA Best Youth Performance Trophy, among 4 further awards (as listed below). The ESP team are proud of their achievements from this past season and this award ceremony gave credence to their renewed confidence.
Soul Aquatics hosted the Eastern Gauteng Awards breakfast. Eastern Aquatics has raised the levels required for recognition over the past seasons to ensure that swimmers train harder, to strive for awards and recognition, and hopefully raise the standard of swimming in South Africa.
