Annabelle and Sean compete in the Harlequin Zonal Championship Team

The Harlequins made it a clean sweep to retain honours at the New Zealand Zonal Championships at the Sir Owen G Glenn Aquatic Centre in Auckland and our very own Annabelle McLaren and Sean Gibbs helped make the magic happen.

A whopping 160 of New Zealand’s leading and up and coming swimmers were pitted against each other in the competition. 

Swimmers from all regions in the country are divided into four zones which compete in replay and team formats over two non-stop two hour sessions. Each team is made up of 10 male and 10 female swimmers in the under 16 competition and the same sized teams in the 16 and over competition. Both Annabel and Sean competed in the under 16 competition.

The Zonal Championship honours went to the the Harlequins in both competitions. Well done Annabelle and Sean. We have no doubt that they could not have done it without you.
