The swimmers from Tuks harvested among the 210 medals for grabs at the annual Mpumalanga swimming championships held last weekend in Nelspruit.
A small group from the TUKS talent development squad participated as preparation for the NorthernTigers provincial championships starting on the 6th December in Pretoria.
These swimmers have been preparing for these two competitions since May, and were rewarded with fantastic performances. Most swimmers were on the medal podium numerous times, nearly all achieved personal best times and a few broke provincial Mpumalanga records. The group as a whole won the top club score trophy.
This coming weekend will see the TuksSwimming club en-force defending their title as top club in Pretoria. Olympians such as Suzaan van Biljon as well as William Diering will be racing with a group of talented youngsters preparing for London 2012.
