Birthday Greetings to:
Good luck to Elenoa Asi who is competing at the New Zealand Junior Swimming Age Group
championships in Auckland next Friday through to Sunday. Elenoa had to qualify for these championships with a certain time which is for swimmers aged 10 - 12 years and she will compete against the best in New Zealand. Elenoa has qualified for 8 events in the U10 age group in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and individual medley and has got there by training up to 9 times a week including early morning starts. Her favourite stroke is breaststroke. This is Elenoa's first time competing at a national event and is looking forward to it but is a little bit nervous. Good luck from all of us.
