Former national swim coach Jan Cameron says the quality of the performances is what pleased her most at the New Zealand Open Swimming Championships in Christchurch, which ended yesterday.

Nine swimmers qualified for the world champs in Rome later this year, with Moss Burmester breaking his Commonwealth record in the 200 metre butterfly, and Glenn Snyders posting the worlds second fastest time this year in the 100 metre breaststroke.

Cameron, now the General Manager for Performance and Pathways, says it was also pleasing to see so many faces step up to the mark after the retirements of a number of senior members after the Beijing Olympics.

Jan Cameron. says the squad of nine will now target the Grand Prix on the Gold Coast in June and events in Canada as they prepare for the worlds, which begin in July.
