Clarendon scholars and Vikings Aquatic Club members,
Kate Meyer (18 years old) and Tori Voke (15) competed at the South African Senior National Olympic Trials in Port Elizabeth recently.
Competing in an open age group event, against women in their twenties, they performed unbelievably and can be proud of their achievements.
Swimming heats in the morning to qualify for an A Final (top 8) or B Final (top 16) they then raced again in the evening for their overall national placings.
Border Swimming’s pride and hope placed as follows:
50m breaststroke – 8th,
100m freestyle – 16th,
200m breaststroke – 7th,
100m breaststroke – 10th,
50m freestyle – 8th,
200m individual medley – 12th.
50m Backstroke – 16th,
100m freestyle – 22nd,
200m backstroke – 11th,
100m backstroke – 18th,
50m freestyle – 11th.
At a disadvantage in age, for now, Kate and Tori are yet to peak.
