Young swimmers to shine

Ready to go: South Gippsland Bass Swim Club members are preparing to tackle the Victorian championships in the next few days.

VICTORIA’S best young swimmers will converge on the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre this weekend to compete at the 2012 Victorian Age Championships.
Over 180 events will be conducted over six days making it the biggest event on the Victorian swimming calendar for aspiring young swimmers.
South Gippsland Bass Swim Club will have 21 swimmers at the championships, the largest number of entrants in many years.
Senior coach Frances Toohey believes it is a great achievement that so many of the club’s swimmers qualified for the championships this year.
“For such a small club, it’s great to see the amount of entrants we have this year,” he said.
“All of our swimmers have been training extremely hard over the last couple of months and I expect them to do well.”
A number of South Gippy Bass swimmers will be in with a chance of breaking their PBs or winning a medal at the championships including Beau Van Agtmaal, Charlie Gough, Nathan Foote, Lochie Nunn, Bowen Gough, Jessica Kiley and Oliver Bates.
With his first national 100m butterfly time, Bowen Gough has impressed recently.  Others to look out for include Beau Van Agtmaal and young back stroker Nathan Foote.
“Congratulations also to relay swimmers Harriet Bates, Rhett Boscombe-Hill, Harrison Cumming, Jack Dunn, Molly Edwards, Jacob and Jessica Kiley, Amy and Lauren Robertson, Alek Ryan, Courtney Teakle, Immogen Kaye Helmot, and Taylah Tobias,” said Frances.
The 2012 Victorian Age Championships commenced at 9am Saturday December 17 and conclude on Thursday December 22.
