SOME of the Whit­sun­days most tal­ented swim­mers were on show at the Queens­land State Short Course three day swim­ming meet in Bris­bane last week­end.

Top swim­mers Emma Ho­gan, Char­lotte Mitchell and Ivan Van Zyl rep­re­sented the Whit­sun­day re­gion af­ter achiev­ing state short course swim­ming times dur­ing last term and early sea­son swim events.

The Cannonvale Can­nons swim­mers all per­formed ex­cep­tion­ally well with their com­mit­ments to a dis­ci­plined and well at­tended win­ter train­ing pro­gram pay­ing off with sub­stan­tial per­sonal per­for­mances from ev­ery swim­mer.

Van Zyl was out­stand­ing and com­peted in six events, achiev­ing long awaited per­sonal bests with a national qual­i­fy­ing time.

He fin­ished in the top 10 in the 200m breast stroke and a very well de­served bronze medal in the 100m breast­stroke event.

Ho­gan also per­formed well with a per­sonal best in the 13years 50m back­stroke and was named the best placed re­gional swim­mer in the event.
