Games ‘su­per fun’ for su­per fin Holly

Weekend Courier - - Sport -

ROCK­ING­HAM elite swim­mer Holly Bar­ratt is re­ally happy with her per­for­mance at the Com­mon­wealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Bar­ratt won sil­ver in the 50m but­ter­fly and was fourth in the 50m back­stroke fi­nal.

Bar­ratt was one of six swim­mers from WA chosen as part of the Aus­tralian Dol­phins Swim­ming Team.

“It was su­per fun,” Bar­ratt said.

Swim­ming WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Dar­ren Beazley said the WA swim­mers se­cured six medals at the Com­mon­wealth Games.

“It was an amaz­ing feat, given the elite com­pe­ti­tion that they were up against,” he said.

“Th­ese in­cred­i­ble per­for­mances were the re­sult of the fine work and ded­i­ca­tion by our clubs and our coaches who have worked tire­lessly over many years.

“I was lucky enough to be pool­side for sev­eral of the swim­ming events and was so proud of all of our swim­mers.

Bar­ratt said she was now pre­par­ing for the Pan Pa­cific Cham­pi­onships in Au­gust.

“It’s a big meet where we race Ja­pan, the US and China,” she said.

“The tri­als start in July.”
