Brown and Nel qualify for Rio

Newton Agency’s athletes were feeling very Olympic this past week. Myles Brown achieved a childhood dream by winning gold and qualifying for Rio in the 400m freestyle at the recent SA Swimming National Championships held at Kings Park pool. Wenda Nel also showed her class on the track at the SA Athletics Championships in Stellenbosch. She booked her ticket to the Games in a world leading time of 54.8 in her favoured event the 400m Hurdles.

Lee-Roy Newton, group MD, knows the pressures involved in qualifying for one of the biggest sporting events in the world and said “I am thrilled for Myles and Wenda. The Olympic Games are something special and these two now join the exclusive club that can say they are Olympic athletes”. He went on to wish them well in their preparation for the August event.
