Certificate of Achievement - Jo Matthews

Certificates of Achievement are presented to those swimmers who, while not being awarded the Swimmer of the Year trophy, have demonstrated outstanding performances throughout the year at national and/or international level. The ‘Certificate of Achievement’ recipients are chosen by the Executive with the assistance of the National Recorder.

The only recipient for 2015 was Jo Matthews, pictured here after being awarded her certificate at the NISCC in Taupo.

Jo was recognised for breaking 8 NZ records at 5 meets. She was New Zealand’s sole representative at the FINA World Masters in Kazan, Russia.

Jo broke short course records in 50, 100 and 200m Fly and 200m IM, and long course records in 100 and 200m Fly.

Some of the records had stood since 2007 and she reduced the 100m Fly short course record by over six seconds in one swim.

Our congratulations and thanks to Jo.
