Gal­ston Goes Na­tional

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

You may all of heard that the Aus­tralian Swimming Cham­pi­onships have just been held in Ade­laide, and our Aus­tralian Olympic swimming team was picked from the vic­tors. What you may not have known (but do now), was that in the fort­night be­fore that, the Aus­tralian Swimming Age Cham­pi­onships were held at the same venue.

Stacy Hard­ing, Gal­ston’s cham­pion Head Coach, got three young ath­letes to qual­ify for this pres­ti­gious event, all for the first time.

Sam Lo­ria, Jack Charl­ton and Jar­rod Dear­den all spent an amaz­ing week in Ade­laide with their coach and fam­i­lies, dip­ping their toes into this elite at­mos­phere for the first time. All three boys swam PB’s in their var­i­ous events, and all 3 boys fin­ished in the top 25 of all Aus­tralia.

The boys and their fam­i­lies would like to thank the Gal­ston swim club mem­bers for their well wishes, fund rais­ing and uni­forms. Next year, the event will be held in Bris­bane and we are cer­tain to have many more swim­mers, led by th­ese (now) vet­er­ans of the sport. Go Gal­ston!!!
