Toni and Emma qualify to participate in the SA Grand Prix in Stellenbosch

We congratulate Toni Rafferty and Emma Podesta who swam at the SA Grand Prix in Stellenbosch with the Elite top SA swimmers over the weekend.

Toni qualified in the 100 free, 100 fly, 50 back, 50 fly and 50 free final. Toni joined an Elite group of swimmers breaking the 27 sec barrier in the 50 free by swimming a 26.95 and thereby setting an EP record for girls 17 and the Open womans record. She swam an EP and All corners record in the 50 fly final placing her 4th!

Emma Podesta with her first exposure at top SA swimming has done exceptionally well and managed a second reserve for 100 backstroke. Both girls are swimming at the SA Senior Nationals and Junior Nationals in March and April.
