My name is Kaleb Lombard, aged seventeen (18), in my final year of high school, born and raised in South Africa. I have achieved several records and national results.
One of my proudest moments was breaking Zane Waddle’s Free State Inter-High Gala record of 1:01,98 for the LCM 100 Backstroke at the age of 16 by swimming a 1:01,88. (52.90 SCY) At the age of fifteen (15) I achieved both 3rd and 4th place in the SA Junior Nationals in March 2019. I have already achieved two (2) provincial victor ludorum’s in South Africa.(Free State and Eastern Province)
I am a boarder in a school hostel and often battle to find lifts to the pool. I miss my meals and don’t have access to gym, Pilatus and morning training like other swimmers. This brings me to the point where I am hungry to see what I can achieve in the discipline of swimming!!! I know and I believe that if you give me the chance to swim in an American College program, I will NOT let you down.
Academics: I got 91% average for 2020 and my GPA is 4.0
I have always been a team player. I am captain of my school and swimming club .I was also appointed leader/prefect in my school and hostel.
MY MOTO:” You become a champion by fighting one more round. When things are tough, you fight one more round!”
