Three more medals have been won over the past two days in the Swimming events at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China.
The New Zealand swim proved all that glitters is not gold as they collected two silver medals on the third night and one silver medal on the fourth night of finals at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China.
Lauren Boyle, from Swimming New Zealand’s High Performance Centre, grabbed her third medal when she earned silver in the final of the 200m freestyle on Tuesday night.
Earlier Glenn Snyders earned his second medal when he was overtaken in the final 10m in the final of the 100m breaststroke, and settled for silver.
Last night the girls relay team came second gaining a silver in the 4 x 200m freestyle relay, the team consisted of Natasha Hind, Melissa Ingram, Amaka Gessler & Lauren Boyle
This brings the team’s tally to nine medals in four days, which just beats the total number of medals won by New Zealand swimmers in their previous 22 years of their summer Universiade competition.
