Crawford North Coast Team Relay 2022

I have been swimming the Midmar Mile since 2019 and am the youngest girl to have completed the mile successfully at 6 years old! This year I was a member of the Crawford International North Coast Schools Team and together with my teammates we swam to raise funds for the Chad Le Clos/ Friends of Swimmers Trust. Together we raised R30 800.

The Midmar Mile is my most favourite event and my friends and I had the best weekend. I love swimming in the dam, it makes me feel free and happy and grateful for my talent. And now I can swim it for a good cause too. My mom has swum with me every time and she is my biggest supporter. I love the aQuelle Midmar Mile!
