He holds many local and regional titles and records. In January of 2019 he was part of an open age 4KM open water relay at the SNZ Open Water Championships that came first in New Zealand.
Damon has always treated his academic record as his most valuable asset. He has excellence endorsed eight NCEA subjects from eleven and merit endorsed two, gained 96 Excellence credits at Level 1 and 100 Excellence credits at Level 2. He has taken part in IGCSE and AS level Cambridge exams and gained A* grades.
