Red­backs set to dive right in

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Work Place -

OLYMPIC swimming sil­ver medal­list Antony Matkovich will head the new Aquinas Red­backs Swim Club.

Matkovich, who won sil­ver at the Athens Olympic Games in 2004 and is also a two-time world cham­pion in the pool, said he is ex­cited about the prospect of the new club start­ing on Oc­to­ber 1 at Aquinas Col­lege.

“The de­vel­op­ment of our squad pro­grams these past few years has re­sulted in the es­tab­lish­ment of the swim club,” he said.

He said the club would welcome mem­bers from across the com­mu­nity.

“Squad train­ing and swimming lessons are run all year round at the heated 50m Aquinas pool and ev­ery­one is welcome to join, Aquinas and non-Aquinas boys and girls.”

He said all squad swim­mers would be­come inau­gu­ral Red­backs Swim Club mem­bers and the open­ing of the club would co­in­cide with the start of the WA swimming sea­son.
