2016 Scholarship Recipient Emma Robinson
WHIPA are delighted to announce that a 2016 WHiPA Lloyd Morrison Scholarship has been awarded to swimmer Emma Robinson, who was recently named in the NZ Olympic Team for Rio 2016.
Emma Robinson started swimming competitively at age 13 for Wellington's Capital Swim Club, which she still swims for. Her first team was for the 2011 Junior Commonwealth Games, followed by the team for the 2012 Junior Pan Pacifics. In 2013 she competed in the World Champs Open Water team, then in 2014 she qualified individually in the pool for the Commonwealth Games and in 2015 she qualified individually for the Swimming World Champs.
Emma says: "I have now been selected to compete at my very first Olympics. It is something that I have dreamed of doing since I was very young, and I can't thank you enough for the on going support WHiPA has given me, as without it my dreams wouldn't be coming true."
