We are very excited to welcome New Zealand swimmer, Helena Gasson, to the AMANZI Girls team.
Helena has been swimming at a national level since she was 9 and now at just 21, holds two New Zealand National records.
The 2015 reigning champion in the 100m and 200m Butterfly, as well as 200m and 400m Individual Medley, improved once again in 2016, finishing with two national records and three national titles. Helena broke the New Zealand record for the 100m Butterfly, as well as improving upon her own New Zealand record in the 200m Butterfly heats.
After such amazing results and times at New Zealand Olympic Trials, Helena qualified to represent New Zealand in the 100m Butterfly at this year’s Rio Olympics.
But Rio will just be the start of more to come, with Helena’s eyes set on the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
We can’t wait to support Helena every step of the way on her road to Rio and beyond.
