The outdoor heated pool accommodates the need for swimmers to keep agile. This separate warm up and cool down facility is available to the swimmers and coaches, throughout the competition. ESP awarded “Colours” to Kyle Mckenzie, Bernelee Doster, and Tambai Dutiro by giving them the striking white honours Piranha Jacket. Many successes and life lessons will always be realized at this level of competition. Kyle Mckenzie had his best SAJN to date qualifying in 6 finals, scoring 20 points, and swimming 12 PBs.
