2011 NZ Short Course Championships

Meli Malani from Fiji who had been training in the Keys with me this summer flew over to New Zealand after the Far Western Championships in California to compete in the 2011 NZ Short Course Championships. Meli won the 50 butterfly (26.45) and the 50 breaststroke (30.47), got the silver medal in the 50 free (24.42), got 4th place in the 100 butterfly (1:00.96) and got 7th place in the 100 free (56.18). He also swam the 100 IM but didn’t make final in that event. This was a great meet for Meli. Full results can be found on the New Zealand Swimming website.
