Bianca gets bronze

Bianca Meyer claimed her second bronze medal of the Monaco leg of the Mare Nostrum Series as the final day came to a close on Sunday.

Meyer’s time of 2min 20.05sec in the 200 metre Individual Medley secured her place on the medal podium behind Britain’s Hannah Miley, who claimed the gold in 2:12.69 and Zimbabwe’s Kirsty Coventry, now based in Johannesburg, who walked away with the silver in 2:12.91

Neil Versfeld managed a sixth place finish in the 100m breaststroke when he clocked 1:02.41 and in the women’s 200m breaststroke, Ronwyn Roper finished 6th in 2:31.45 while Jessica Liss came in 8th with a time of 2:35.44.

In the 400m freestyle, Michelle Weber and Natasha de Vos finished fourth and sixth in 4:18.94 and 4:20.37 respectively while Dylan Bosch came in seventh in the 100m butterfly with a time of 55.14.

Youngsters Michael Meyer (2:06.31) and Zaahir Gamiet (2:12.69) ended fifth and seven in the 200m backstroke.

The South African swimming team’s next competition will be the International Setti Colli in Rom from 17-19 June.


Well done to the swimmers who are doing so well in the european tour. Im also particularly glad to see the inclusion of young Zaahir Gamiet from WPA. It is very sad to know that SWIMSA has not yet produced a swimmer of colour at the olympic games. What will the powers that be from SASCOC do about this?
