Swim club re­turns for 2016

Central and North Burnett Times - - JU­NIOR SPORT -

SWIM­MING: Ev­ery se­nior swim­mer in the Mundubbera Swim Club was awarded a ju­nior ex­cel­lence award by Swim­ming Australia for their results last year.

The JX awards are pre­sented to swim­mers aged nine and older who swam a JX qualifying time at a swim meet.

There are sev­eral lev­els of awards, in­clud­ing gold, sil­ver, bronze and green.

Swim­mer Ali Kas­sulke re­ceived a green award.

“It­was pretty cool to have ev­ery­one who com­peted last year get a JX,” Kas­sulke said.

“It’s a pretty cool achieve­ment.

“I didn’t think I’d get one as I don’t feel I did my best but it was a good sur­prise.”

The 13-year-old said it was good to be back at swim club for an­other year.

“Though I’m not ex­cited for the cold pool though it’s not too bad,” Kas­sulke said.

“I haven’t been train­ing much but it’s good to get back into the com­pet­i­tive stuff.”

Di­rec­tor Roslin Ma­son said she was proud of the swim­mers’ results.

“We’d hope for a suc­cess­ful sea­son again this year where the chil­dren have fun and learn to in­crease their aquatic skills,” Ma­son said.
