Rebecca Meder Top Performs in SA Grand Prix Series Opener

by | Jan 11, 2022

Rebecca Meder top performed at the first major swimming meet of the year as the three-leg SA Grand Prix series kicked off in Mbombela, Mpumalanga.

The 19-year-old Olympian claimed six titles (the 100, 200 and 400m freestyle, 100m breaststroke, 100m butterfly and 200m individual medley).

“For me the Grand Prix went really well after a really hard week of training leading up to it,” said Meder.

“It was just exciting to see that my times were better and faster than this time last year and I did more events this time than I did last year so I’m on track for where I want to be.

“For me this Grand Prix is always important. It’s always about seeing where you are and getting back on track and just hitting times with tired bodies… it’s the steppingstone for the Stellenbosch Grand Prix, Durban Grand Prix and then ultimately Commonwealth Games trials – which are at senior nationals,” she concluded.

The next meet will take place in Stellenbosch from 18-20 February, while the final Grand Prix is scheduled for KwaZulu-Natal in March.
