Over the holidays the pool had many visitors including one very special guest, Jade Edmistone, former World Record holder for Long Course (50m pool), 50m Breaststroke: 30.31 s, set in Melbourne, Australia, January 2006 and 100m Breaststroke: 1:07.03 s – 2nd fastest Australian all-time also.

Not to mention Short course (25m pool) 50m Breaststroke – 29.90 s – (Former world record, set in Brisbane, Australia, September 2004) 100m Breaststroke – 1:05.18 s- 2nd Fastest Australian of all-time.

Jade came and did a 90 minute session with over 25 swimmers from around our local region from Junior to Adult squad with her GET ONCORE product.

This was a session on stability in the water and how your core strength plays a major part in swimming and everyday life. There were many great drills and challenges she gave the swimmers and they all put in a superb effort giving each one a go. We hope to get her back here again soon!

We thank council for their Movies in the Park -it was a great addition for the school holidays in town.
