Swimming New Zealand gets big tick from Sport NZ chief



Swimming has received a gentle pat on the back from Sport New Zealand chief executive Peter Miskimmin following its improved performance at a pinnacle event.

After well-documented struggles in and out of the water, swimming won back some admirers at the just-completed world championships in Barcelona.

The cream of the crop was freestyler Lauren Boyle, with bronze medals in the 400m, 800m and 1500m events. But the full team statistics were five finals appearances and 12 personal bests.

It is a sport out of the blocks again.
