For the last week our class has been going to the gi aquatics center to learn how to swim so I have decided to find a famous swimmer and researched about her this is what I have found.Anna Simcic Forest was a former NZ swimming represent. She represented nz twice winning a gold medal and a silver medal in one event the 1990 Commonwealth Games. Four years later she won another silver medal at the 1994 Commonwealth Games.

Jonathan Winter was born who competed at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta United states for his Country NZ. At the 1995 FINA World SC Championships he won the gold medal with the Men's 4x100 medley relay team. He competed in a lot of events including the Commonwealth Games. Winter is currently the head coach at Raumati Swimming club in Wellington and Coach for the Tongan Olympic Swimming Team at London 2012.


  1. Anna Simcic was my idol when I was swimming. Once, when I was about 8 or 9, Anna was doing some warm up stretches and she accidentally hit me on the head. I went on to win my next backstroke race. I think she transferred her super swimming powers to me with that little whack!
    Jonathan Winter was so fast. I remember watching him and wondering how on earth he could possibly have so much power!
    Your post has brought back many memories for me Rocky - I am pleased that you are learning about some of NZ's unsung swimming heroes.
