Some of the medal winners from the Academy were Samuel Williams, Akshay Shah, Alex Chia and Shivraj Vaghela, who managed to obtain more gold medals in the championships than any other swimmer in the team.

All in all, the swimmers broke their personal best times and made new times. They also gained a lot of experience swimming against the greats. It was an exposure they will never forget.
