On the final day of competition at the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m), the New Zealand team continued their record-breaking week in both the Men’s and Women’s 4 x 100m Medley Relay.
Emma Godwin (1:00.01) led off with the backstroke leg in tough conditions given she had just completed the 200m Backstroke heat minutes earlier. Helena Gasson proved her versatility in the breaststroke leg (1:06.77), before Hazel Ouwehand (1:00.01) and Rebecca Moynihan (54.15) brought it home to finish 7th in their heat and 13th overall. The girls completed their championships with another NZ Record by 1.83 seconds after a great week (4:00.92).
Zac Dell (52.19) kicked started the boys in the backstroke and Josh Gilbert continued his good breaststroke form (57.83). Cam Gray started to take water away from the Czech Republic in the butterfly leg (50.40) and Carter Swift was a rocket ship in the freestyle leg (46.24). Collectively, the team broke a long-standing NZ Record from 2008 by 0.47 seconds and completed their campaign in fine form (3:26.68).
