It is with great sadness, lots of tears and an equal amount of hugs, that I told my squad last night that I will be leaving. I have had an awesome team of swimmers and coaches, over the 17 years I have been at PSC. I am so proud of all that they have achieved.
I have made some great friends, had some fantastic and challenging experiences that have been part of an incredible journey.
The New Zealand swim team completed their campaign at the 17th FINA World Championships in Budapest.
Waikato’s Bradlee Ashby (Fairfield club) was close to his personal best in the gruelling 400m individual medley, timed at 4:20.54 to be 23 fastest in the heats.
He would have needed to be nearly three seconds under the national record to make the final, in what is his back-up event.
Fractions proved the difference for two New Zealand swimmers chasing semifinals on the penultimate day of the FINA World Swimming Championships in Budapest.
Backstroke junior world champion Gabrielle Fa’amausili, 17, in her first elite world championships, clocked 25.38s to be 24th fastest from 87 starters in heats of the 50m freestyle. The talented United club swimmer from Auckland has swum 0.3s fastest which would have been enough to climb inside the top 16 for the semifinals.
