Agency signs Matthew Sates

Durban 13 April 2022 – Newton Agency is proud to announce the signing of Junior World Record holder, swimmer Matthew Sates. 18 year old Sates set the swimming world alight last year when he broke 3 Junior World Records on his way to being named best male swimmer of the World Cup series. Sates times also rank him in the top 10 of all time in his events.

“We are delighted to welcome Matthew into the Newton Agency family. Seeing his level determination, commitment and love of competing makes us really excited about his future and we look forward to the journey ahead to Paris 2024 and beyond with Matt” said Lee-Roy Newton, MD of Newton Agency.

Sates was equally thrilled, saying “I love swimming and for as long as I can remember I dreamed of competing on the world biggest stage as a professional. It takes an expert team around you though to make this happen, and so I am excited to join Newton Agency as I take this next step in my career. Thank you to my family, Wayne Riddin and Seals swimming club for their support over the past 10 years, I wouldn’t be where I am without them. I also want to thank everyone at the University of Georgia, especially my coaches Jack and Neil as well as my teammates, for giving me the confidence to take this step – I know that I will always have a swimming family in Georgia, and for that I am grateful.”

Matthew will now be preparing for the World Championships in June and Commonwealth Games in July this year, before defending his World Cup title later this year.
