Swimmer, Wil Donaldson, has defended the NSW Country Championship age title for the 100m Butterfly event for the third successive year.
Competing at Sydney Olympic Park recently, Donaldson had two top ten finishes in the Mens 14years 100m Breastroke and 200M Individual Medley, before taking out the Mens 14yrs 100m Butterfly title.
Competing against swimmers from all over country NSW including swimmers from Newcastle and Wollongong, Donaldson took an early lead in the event and held his competitors at bay to take the win.
