Success and Nicholas Groenewald have been synonymous for many years as an underage Australian swimmer. Nicholas has now won a staggering 17 gold medals at the Australian Age Championships over the last three years, including setting eight Australian Age group records. He also broke Ian Thorpe's Australian Age record in the 200m Individual Medley and his own Australian Age record in the 100m Backstroke.
Now through the assistance of the University's Elite Athlete Entry scheme and support of the Elite Athlete Program (EAP) he will commence a Bachelor's of Science degree while simultaneously pursuing his sporting dreams. Groenewald believes the support of the EAP "will enable me to continue with my academic desires whilst still being able to follow my dream of being an elite athlete".
