Gi­ant steps with strokes

Kalamunda Reporter - - Wafl -

MEM­BERS of the Guild­ford and Kala­munda Dis­tricts Swim­ming Club re­cently com­peted at the Aus­tralian Age Swim­ming Championships for 13 to 18-year-olds in Syd­ney.

The team con­sisted of eight swim­mers and two coaches: se­nior coach Car­los Chi­tao and head coach Brett Tongue.

“To just qual­ify for th­ese championships is a sea­son’s jour­ney, but then to be in the fi­nals against such top-level swim­mers is an­other step for­ward,” Tongue said.

“From th­ese per­for­mances all Guild­ford-Kala­munda swim­mers will now be iden­ti­fied in Swim­ming WA per­for­mance path­way pro­grams for 2018-19.”

Emily Nayler made two fi­nals at the championships and is now ranked num­ber 1 in WA for 13 years breast­stroke.

Jade Mann made the 16 years 100m and 200m breast­stroke fi­nals as well and achieved open level times dur­ing the sea­son.

Christopher Ver­ran com­peted in the 15 years 1500m freestyle and fin­ished fifth in Aus­tralia. He also com­peted in the 400m freestyle and achieved a per­sonal best.
