Hungary for Success

24 April 2019

Age Nationals
F-Teamer Emily scored big at Aussie Age Champs in Adelaide.

Adelaide was on fire last week with the country's best coming together to determine exactly who the next wave of Australian champions will be. Our Funkita F-Teamers made sure Australia knows who to look out for, winning a massive 24 medals.

Age Nationals
Gabi brought the heat to Age Champs in her Fire Matrix APEX.

Two athletes who achieved extraordinary results at the meet are Gabi Peiniger and Emily White. In addition to bringing home some impressive bling, Gabi scored 6 medals while Emily won 4, they also scored a coveted spot on the Aussie team that's heading to FINA World Junior Champs later this year. The team was announced at the end of the meet and they are understandably pumped to be representing Australia in Budapest, Hungary in August.

Training with the Norwood Swimming Club, Emily has been nothing but determined as she has prepared for Aussie Age Champs. For the last 12 months she has been training hard and telling herself that she would make the team, and she did it! What a massive achievement for someone who is only 15.

Gabi has had a busy training year in her final year of age group racing, switching clubs from Vicentre to MLC Aquatic. While some swimmers struggle with change Gabi has thrived! Bringing home the most medals out of all the Funkita athletes was already impressive, but to also be named on the Australian team is the cherry on top.
