2017 Australian Nationals – it’s a wrap!

Congratulations to all the Sydney Emeralds who competed at the Hancock Prospecting Australian Open and Age Group Championships over the Easter Long Weekend. In attendance was 15 athletes, 4 coaches, and dozens of family members for support.

The weekend was filled fun, friends, food – and amazing performances from all athletes in the pool. It is hard to fully capture the experience in words so we can only hope these pictures help.

Highlights from the weekend include:

  • Gold: Open Free Team – Sydney Emeralds
  • Gold: Masters Tech Team – Sydney Emeralds
  • Silver: 12 and under Team – Sydney Emeralds
  • 5th place: 13-15 solo – Genevieve
  • 6th place: 13-15 team – Sydney Emeralds

Pam deserves a huge congratulations as she earned a place on the Australian 13-15 National team. She will be attended several camps with swimmers across Australia to train for the 2017 Comen Cup in Portugal this Winter. Full results can be found on the Synchro NSW website COMPETITION AND RESULTS page.
