New Otago age group swimming record

By OBHS Sports | Posted: Wednesday March 8, 2023

Year 10 student Neo Salomonsson has returned from a very successful weekend at the South Island Long Course Championships in Invercargill.

Racing in 6 events, Neo came away with 6 personal bests and 6 gold medals!

Neo continued to impress in his signature stroke, dropping almost a full second off his personal best time to break the Male 14 Years 50m Butterfly Otago Age Group Record with 27.78s.

Constantly improving, he now holds both the 13 and 14 years Otago Age Group records in this event.

The previous record of 27.80s was set in 2013.

Congratulations Neo, this is an outstanding achievement.
