Childers supports young swimmer
CHILDERS swimming sensation Jaylee McMahon will be heading to Adelaide this month to swim at the national championships.
Jaylee’s training is equal to a part-time job, spending 25 hours per week in the swimming pool.
Her time in the pool has paid off as she gets ready to swim at the Pacific School Games.
The event will be held at the South Australia Aquatic and Leisure Centre from November 21, for a week.
Childers principal Robyn Philpott said the students and teaching staff were proudly supporting Jaylee’s great achievements in the pool.
“Jaylee’s training and dedication is inspiring for other students,” Mrs Philpott said.
Jaylee is excited to be heading to Adelaide and hopes she makes Childers proud.
“I hope I improve on my times. I want to beat my current PB at the event,” Jaylee said.
The primary school student said she loved swimming, and when her uniform arrived, it made it real.
“As it gets closer I get a little more nervous,” she said. The petite 10-year-old swimmer will compete against other students from around the country and she hopes she brings home a medal.
“I have a lot of support from my friends and they hope I do well,” Jaylee said.
Jaylee thanks Childers for all the support in and out of the pool and she hopes to bring home gold.
