by | Dec 16, 2020

South Africa’s swim sensation, Tatjana Schoenmaker, continues to dominate headlines since the return of the sport, breaking another African record at the NTS Championships in Pretoria on Tuesday, 15 December 2020.

Schoenmaker swam to the finish line in a time of 30:52, bettering her 50m long course breaststroke record from Commonwealth Games.

The 23-year-old’s PR Manager, Bronwyn Roets, took to Twitter to congratulate her client, saying: “Another African record crushed by ‪@TRSchoenmaker at the NTS champs today in Pretoria (altitude!). Bettering her 50m long course breaststroke record from Commonwealth Games with a time of 30.52.  What a talent! Go girl!!  Super proud!”

In September, Schoenmaker broke the 200m breaststroke record set by Suzaan van Biljon 12 years ago, to claim the South African and continental bragging rights in a time of 2min 18.20sec at the South African Shortcourse Championships in Pretoria.

The talented swimmer continues to perform impressively in the pool resulting in a number of accolades under her belt including recognition as the 2018 gsport Sasol Emerging Athlete Award, and her 2019 Minister’s Recognition of Excellence Award at the 2019 Momentum gsport Awards.
