Rorys bronze a step in the right direction
The Far North Coast Development Program seems to be well on track after a positive showing in the Queensland State Open and Age Short Course Championships held at Chandler Aquatic Centre last month.
The Far North Coast Swimming Team, which is comprised of eight boys and eight girls, picked up nine medals, five silver and four bronze for their efforts, swimming a mammoth 81 personal best times.
Perhaps the most notable performance was from nine-year-old Rory Brown, who won a bronze in the 50m breaststroke, which was enough to earn him a spot in the Far North Coast Swimming Squad.
Silver medallists were Stephanie Single in the 11 years 50m backstroke, Oliver Hulbert in the 12 years 800m freestyle and 15 years 400m individual medley, and John Otton in the 16 years 100m individual medley and the 16 years 100m backstroke.
