Black Fins and Junior Black Fins together in Eindhoven

Posted by SLSNZ Media on Monday, September 5, 2016

The Junior Black Fins are now in Eindhoven with just two days left until competition time at Rescue 2016.

The team has been there overnight to allow them to train at the Pieter van den Hoogenband Pool venue later today (Netherlands time).

Team manager Ange Johnston says being in Eindhoven has given them a chance to familiarise themselves with the pool prior to racing on Saturday and Sunday, after their beach events.

They now have a packed 48 hours ahead of them with three pool sessions before meeting up with the Black Fins for the supporter's luncheon tomorrow and then travelling back to the beach in Noordwijk tomorrow afternoon.

Ange says the athletes have adapted well to the ever-changing environment and conditions since they arrived in The Netherlands last week.

They're looking forward to the final stages of their preparation and they're all in great spirits.

Tomorrow evening, the Black Fins will be presented with their Beanies following the supporter's luncheon where they are looking forward to hosting family and friends who have travelled to support the team.

Their racing begins in the pool on Tuesday night (NZ time).
