RANT N' ROAR - DAY ONE
Swimmer NATHAN LUSCOMBE WINS BRONZE
Team NL swimmer Nathan Luscombe, from Grand-Falls Windsor, had an amazing day in the pool on Day One of the 2022 Canada Summer Games! He won a BRONZE medal in the 400 free (LC) (multi-class Para) with an amazing time of 4:59.86! At the medal ceremony held earlier this evening at Niagara Palace, Nathan was all smiles as he received his medal.
His parents, brother and sister, were lucky to be able to be at the medal ceremony. "Nate started swimming as a form of physical therapy. We never imagined that he would love it as much as he does. He started training with the GFW Gators and later joined the Gander Lakers. He spends many long hours at the YMCA pool training on his own. He has been supported by wonderful friends and coaches from all over NL. We are so proud of his dedication to swimming and we are so thankful he has found such a supportive community to be part of. Watching you today at the 400 free race was an amazing and emotional experience. Congrats!!" said Lynette Luscombe.
This is the first medal for Team NL at the 2022 Canada Summer Games. "It’s so exciting to be a part of the first medals awarded at the 2022 Canada Games. Nathan has worked so hard throughout his training with Team NL and I am not surprised that he was successful in winning Bronze this afternoon. It was an impressive swim where Nathan followed the plan exactly and hung in tough right to the end!," said Duffy Earle, Team NL Swim Coach.
