St Teresa’s School Swimmer makes SA Team
A learner at a Johannesburg Catholic school will compete for South Africa in the Commonwealth Games to be held in April on the Gold Coast in Australia.
Kate Beavon, a Grade 12 pupil at St Teresa’s School in Rosebank, has been called up to the national swimming squad.
The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has named a powerful team to represent the country at the Commonwealth Games from April 4-5.
Team South Africa athletes will do battle across 16 codes, including para-sports athletics, lawn bowls, swimming, and powerlifting.
Aquatics is the biggest code in terms of numbers, with 28, comprising 23 swimmers, three divers, and two para-swimmers.
Ms Beavon, 17, will be in a squad that includes Olympic champions Cameron van der Burgh and Chad le Clos.
“All of us at St Teresa’s are immensely proud of Kate, and wish her huge congratulations,” said Debbie de Koning of St Teresa’s School.
