Last week was another massive one for the TSS Swimming program with two major meets happening in the space of six days involving over 70 swimmers from TSS Aquatic!
The World Junior Championships finished on Sunday. TSS had three swimmers competing for Australia along with High Performance Coach Chris Nesbit. Josh Parrish, had an awesome meet coming away with a silver medal in the 4x200m freestyle relay as well as narrowly missing two bronze medals by 0.01 and 0.03 in the 400m (3:51.00) and 800m (7:57.43) freestyles.
Grayson Bell claimed silver in the mixed medley 4x100m relay and Dom Richardson swam in two semi-finals. All in all it was massive step forwards for the lads, swimming well and being part of an Australia team which finished first overall on the medal table!
The major domestic meet for the winter was the Queensland State Short Course Championships which took place in Brisbane over the weekend. TSS Aquatic had an absolutely awesome meet, smashing our medal tally from last years competition. In total we won 24 gold medals, 30 silver medals and 21 bronze medals!!!
