Aimee breaks another SA record!

Aimee breaks another SA record!

Aimee Canny, our local swimming star, astounded all again at the South African Junior National Champs at King Parks in Durban on the 21-25 March 2018, with multiple medals and a South African Record! Aimee achieved Gold in the 50m and 100m Freestyle with the fastest time across all age groups, and she beat the SA age group record with 57.31 for the 100m Freestyle! Aimee also took Gold in 200m Freestyle, Silver in 50m Breaststroke and Bronze in 200m Breaststroke.

Aimee is coached independently by Grant Ferguson and has been prospering since starting swimming with him in Grade 1. Destined for great heights already, Aimee achieved Gold in the 50m and 100m Freestyle with the fastest time across all age groups at the Junior National Champs. Most notably, Aimee has beaten the SA age group record with 57.31 for the 100m Freestyle! Aimee also took Gold in 200m Freestyle, Silver in 50m Breaststroke and Bronze in 200m Breaststroke.

Knysna Dragons and Coach Grant Ferguson say that “they are extremely proud of Aimee and look forward to her exciting future in swimming”. Aimee humbly says that she is focusing on her “short-term goals for now and has decided to do a handful of races at the Senior National Championships hosted at Newton Park in Port Elizabeth over 23-28 April 2018”.

We wish Aimee all the best as she swims alongside international champions Cameron van der Burgh, Chad le Clos and “the female swimming idols, Erin Gallagher and Emma Chelius that she also enjoyed meeting at the Grand Prix in Stellenbosch recently”.

Oakhill School and the Knysna community are exceptionally proud of our extra-ordinary swimming star!
