Sates & van Niekerk shine at South African Championships

Matthew Sates and Lara van Niekerk had an impressive medal haul at the South African National Swimming Championships held last week.

van Niekerk retained her 50m Breaststroke national title and in the process set a world lead time of 29.78s. She also claimed silver in the 100m Breaststroke.

Sates had a busy week, capturing national titles in the 200m Freestyle, 200m IM and 400mIM as well as silver in the 100m Butterfly.

Both van Niekerk and Sates will turn their attention now to the World Championships in Japan later this year.
