Grammar Swimmers Take the Plunge at States13th December 2019
The Toowoomba Grammar Swimming Club will have a team of 52 swimmers competing at one of Australia’s toughest swimming competitions, the Queensland Swimming Championships at Chandler, Brisbane from 14-20 December.
This is one of the biggest swim meets in the southern hemisphere, with Queensland considered the strongest swimming state in Australia. Due to the high standard of competition, many international swimmers also attend this event, with strong representation from New Zealand and Japan.
TGS has 52 swimmers competing in the relay events and 25 TGS swimmers will compete in individual events. Many of the swimmers who are eligible for the relay teams are too young to compete in individual events at these Championships.
The ultimate goal is to obtain national qualify times and go on to represent Queensland at the National Championships next year, however our swimmers will also be aiming to smash their PBs and this year the vast majority of the team have already set new PBs at various competitions leading up to these Championships, so the pressure is on.
Toowoomba Grammar Swimming Club is fortunate to have a large number of strong chances leading into these Championships, particularly Jude Youens, Isaac Cooper, William Salmond, Josephine Illing and Isabelle Mason who have all competed at a national level previously.
