Pakuranga College Year 9 student Ella Crowe has been achieving big in swimming, with her more recent achievements at the New Zealand Junior Swimming Festival, where she did exceptionally well.
The Festival is run in four regions throughout New Zealand and medals awarded to New Zealand’s Top Junior swimmer. Ella competes to a high national standard in swimming and this time she didn’t disappoint, taking home 4 Golds 3 silvers and 3 bronze medals. This places her as the top ranked swimmer in the Auckland Zone in her age group.
When the results get placed nationally for her age group Ella is ranked 1st in New Zealand, this a massive achievement for her final NZ Junior Festival.
Ella trains exceptionally hard; 8 sessions a week at 2 hours per session. Her favorite is freestyle and her ultimate dream is to compete at the Olympic level and we can certainly see that becoming a reality.
Congratulations Ella we look forward to your swimming success in the future!
