Special mention is made of Taneal Baptiste, who has been named the No 1 swimmer in South Africa for the 400m and 200m freestyle events. Further mention goes to Faarez Gamieldien, who participated in the National Aquatic Championships 2015. He qualified for four Senior national times and five Youth national times. Faarez set five new records at the National Winter Gala, and represented South Africa at the African Union Sports Council. He is ranked in the top two hundred in the world in events like 200Fly and 200 Breast Stroke. We are incredibly proud of this amazing young man.
A new realm of swimming was introduced to CHC in the last year namely Open Water Swimming. At the Sun City Swim, the following pupils all completed the swim in the allotted time: Andrew Vermaak; Liam Castle; Connor Wilson; Alberto Ricci; Micaela Longueira; Kas van Herwaarden; Jordan Nagel; Johannes Stegmann; Jonty Morrison. Sheray Pretorius and Jesica Smit were selected to swim in the South Africa Open Water Nationals, and finished 10th and 9th respectively in their age groups.
