Top swim­mers in Toowoomba

The Chronicle - - NEWS -

TOOWOOMBA Fly­ers Swim­ming Club to­mor­row will host a swim meet that will see some of Aus­tralia’s fastest com­peti­tors com­pet­ing.

Not of­ten do we have three cur­rent Olympians and two Ju­nior Aus­tralian swim­mers com­pet­ing in Toowoomba.

Toowoomba’s Ja­cob Whale and Kady Ibell will com­pete against Cam McEvoy, Mathew Stan­ley (NZ) and Madi Wil­son.

The event will also fea­ture ris­ing Aus­tralian swim­mer Eli­jah Win­ning­ton who com­peted with Ja­cob Whale re­cently at the Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onships in Au­gust.

Toowoomba Flyer swim­mer Ja­cob Whale who is coming out of a rest pe­riod to com­pete this week­end knows he has his work cut out.

“McEvoy is ob­vi­ously a great swim­mer. You don’t get to the Olympics if you’re not. I’m not at 100 per cent at the mo­ment, be­ing in a rest­ing phase, but swim­ming in races of this strength, with my longer dis­tance train­ing, I hope to push him and the other swim­mers all the way”.

McEvoy and Wil­son, who are part of a very strong Bond Univer­sity team, are nom­i­nated in two events each and likely to break some Toowoomba all-comer records should they swim to their per­sonal best times.

The high­light of the meet will be the McDon­alds Har­ris­town Skins, where the eight fastest male and fe­male swim­mers will swim three knock-out races in con­ces­sion with the re­main­ing swim­mers com­pet­ing for cash.
