Congratulations to WBS Coach of the Year 2023 – Russell Geange

We were thrilled to be represented by Chief Executive Officer John Healy at the glittering awards ceremony held on Thursday 8 June, where the announcements for all sections were made.

Russell Geange was also the recipient of the ‘People’s Choice Award’ for the person who received the most votes from all voting forms. A renowned figure of the swimming scene in the Wairarapa, Russell Geange has successfully coached many outstanding young swimmers to NZ honours, not just over the past year, but over a long period of time.

We wish to congratulate all nominees and finalists of this award, and thank all coaches of teams and individuals in our communities for their outstanding contribution.
