Outstanding young swimmer Mason Wang, could be the next Danyon Loader, having recently swum a time that was just a tick off Loader’s national record for the 100m long-course fly.
He is currently the national record holder for:13 years 100m long course butterfly; 13 years 100m short course butterfly; 13 years 50m long course butterfly; -14 years 100m short course butterfly
He also holds a slew of Auckland age group records for 13 and 14 year olds.
Perhaps most notable was breaking the10 year old Auckland 100m fly record for 15-year-olds, with a time of 56.71 that was just outside Loaders 32 year old national record. This was recognised by selection for the NZ team for the Youth Commonwealth Games, for the National Age Programme and the NZ team to the Queensland state champs in December 2023.
Mason’s achievements at the national Age Group championships since being selected as a Don Oliver scholar are: 5 Golds, 3 Silvers, 1 Bronze; 3 Golds, 2 Silvers for individual events; 2 Golds, 1 Silver, 1 Bronze for relay events
Mason’s United Club was the top club at NAGs 2023 and Mason was United’s top points scorer.
