The SA Level 2 Regional Age group Swimming Championships took place 19 – 22 March 2015 in Germiston at the Delville Swimming Pool.
Jonathan Heslop (Jono), aged 11, had a brilliant Level 2. He really enjoyed the fruit of his labour at this champs and found himself a bit stretched at times, but in very high spirits throughout the 4 days! He saw the benefits of good mental and physical preparation with Coach Hendrik. Jono swam the following events – 50m, 100m, 200m Backstroke; 50m, 100m Butterfly; 50m, 100m, 200m Freestyle, 50m, 100m, 200m Breaststroke and 200m Individual Medley. He was also selected for two relay events. Here, this smallest member on team blasted the water like dynamite and contributed to the relay victory for Team Tuks! As they say: TUKS OF NIKS!
Throughout the 4 days he pushed on bravely and managed to make it to the finals for all the above events. He slashed down a total of 33 seconds collectively across all his events. He proudly brought home 3 medals: 1 gold and 2 bronze. Well done for your courage, bravery and persistence Jonathan!
