The Most Southern Synchro Competition in the World.

“Phoenix Synchro Southland is inviting the public to attend the National Synchronised Swimming Championships from the 9th to the 12th October in Invercargill. Over 150 athletes are expected to attend the championships, including swimmers from China, New Caledonia and 9 Clubs from around New Zealand.

Also on display will be the New Zealand Development Team which includes four Southland swimmers; Abbey Flutey, Ali Robertson, Arielle Wilkes and Isabella Gillanders. This team will be using the competition as a platform to showcase their routine before heading to the Singapore Opens in November this year. Local swimmers Arielle Wilkes, Ali Robertson and Abby Flutey are also continuing on to compete at the Asia Pacific Open in Kuala Lumpur.

These swimmers will also be competing for their club teams in solo, duet and team divisions in their respective age groups and competition is expected to be fierce. One pair to watch is the New Zealand Open duet consisting of Jazzlee Thomas and Eva Morris from Tauranga have competed at both the World Junior Championships and the World Open Championships. With Jazzlee now retiring from the sport, this will be the last chance for the public to view them in action.

Over 50 officials will also be in attendance including MBE winning Jennifer Gray. Based in the UK, Gray will be evaluating the New Zealand judges at the competition and will also be holding a three day clinic with the Southland team prior to the competition.

New Zealand’s only FINA A grade Judge Joanne Burns will also be in attendance. Burns has a wealth of international experience, which includes the Commonwealth Games and the 2016 Olympic Games.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the Championships to support local swimmers.

The best viewing time is Tuesday 5:15-7pm for the Open Free Combination team event and on Wednesday 3:45-5pm when the age group and national teams will be competing."
