Marlies Ross, grade 9 learner of TSHS took a bronze in the 200m Individual Medley at the SA National Short Course Championships in Pietermaritzburg, which is remarkable if you think that she is still a junior and her competitors included the likes of the 23yr old Kathryn Meaklim, who competed in the London Olympics.
Jessica Pengelly and Kathryn Meaklim both finished with qualification times in the 200m individual medley, touching the wall in 2:11.61 and 2:12.19 respectively. The bronze medal was won by Marlies Ross in 2:17.94.
