Christmas Message From The NZMS President

Dear Swimmers

This is the final Masterscrawl post for 2014.

It’s been an eventful year, many thanks to all of the clubs that organised meets.

We are particularly grateful to Dunedin and Whakatane for stepping up at short notice to run highly successful Nationals and North Island Short Course championships.

We had swimmers compete very successfully at the World Masters Swimming Champs in Montreal.

It’s also been a very sad year, NZ Masters most successful swimmer Barry Young passed away this month.

It was a comfort to the family to see so many current and ex masters paying their respects at the funeral.

If you are looking for motivation, there’s plenty of events to train for coming up in the New Year – KatiKati are hosting their 33.3m meet in January, and there’s the Cambridge Long Course sanctioned meet in February. In March, South City are hosting our National Long Course championships at Papatoetoe.

Looking further out, Auckland hosts the World Masters Games in 2017. This is a massive event for NZ - 35,000 people are expected to attend. Put a plan in place and start training for it NOW!

Please also take time to complete this year’s survey, your feedback is important to us.

The NZMS executive wish you and your families a very merry and safe Christmas, see you in the pool next year.

John Fisher, NZMS President
