Teen in na­tional team for open swim

Stirling Times - - Wafl -

WATERMANS Bay teenager Chloe Green (16) is rep­re­sent­ing Aus­tralia in open wa­ter swim­ming in Septem­ber.

The Church­lands Se­nior High School stu­dent is one of four swim­mers se­lected for the Aus­tralian ju­nior open wa­ter swim­ming team.

She will com­pete with fel­low Perth City Swim­ming Club mem­ber Reilly Kennedy (18) at the FINA Open Wa­ter World Cup se­ries in China and Tai­wan.

Both swim­mers won three gold medals from three events at this year’s Aus­tralian Open Wa­ter Swim­ming Championships.

Chloe said she was ex­cited to be se­lected for the na­tional team.

“I’m very happy to be on the team, and feel that some of the hard work is start­ing to pay off,” she said.

Club pres­i­dent and Olympic open wa­ter swim­mer Heidi Gan said she was proud of the young ath­letes.

“They are both hard work­ers and fan­tas­tic con­trib­u­tors to our club and it is great to see their com­mit­ment to the sport recog­nised by their se­lec­tion on to the Aus­tralian team,” she said.

“Both Chloe and Reilly came up through our na­tional age group pro­gram, so their se­lec­tion is a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of our coaches in de­vel­op­ing th­ese young ath­letes.”

Teenager Chloe Green will com­pete for Aus­tralia in the FINA Open Wa­ter World Cup championships.
