Swimming: Tough test for Law

Queenstown swimmer Molly Law was unbeatable at the Otago championships but her ability will be tested in Wellington this weekend.

Law (10), who won her seven events at Moana Pool, is Otago's most prominent swimmer competing at the New Zealand junior championships.

Her best chance of a podium finish is in the 100m backstroke in which she was ranked third in the Central and Southern region with her time of 1min 25.52sec.

Law's Queenstown club has three other swimmers - Gabby White (11), Rhiannon Waite (11) and Cool Wakushima (10) - who have also qualified for Wellington.

Otago Country clubs will be well represented in Wellington as Wanaka has also qualified five swimmers.

The best prospect is Gregor Findlay in the boys age 11 and 12 200m backstroke. His best time is 2min 11.89sec.

Jasmine Murray (10) has qualified in seven events. The other Wanaka competitors are Jack Findlay, Shanae Sanders and Tom Heather.

Oamaru swimmers Jaxson MacDonald-Piner (12) and Danielle Walsh (12) have both qualified in seven events. Other swimmers from the country districts competing in Wellington are Joe Harrison (Cromwell) and Ella-Rose Lawrence (Clutha-United).

The Osca training squad of Dunedin has six swimmers competing in Wellington with Kou Kitahara in seven events and Cecilia Crooks in four.

Jack Divers (Waves) and Griffin Hall (Port Chalmers) have both qualified in seven events.
