Somerset College Gr 8 student, Kate Allwood, participated in the 2022 SA National Aquatic Championship, as part of the Western Province swimming team.
Kate swims in the Para S15 category as a deaf swimmer, which requires her to swim without any of her hearing devices. She competes against similar para swimmers from around SA.
She swam in 7 events, and achieved 6 gold medals and 6 personal best times, despite being the youngest swimmer at the senior nationals.
Congratulations on your excellent results, Kate!
