Mr Liam Du Feu – Director of Swimming
The 2017 National Short Course Swimming Championships was one of the most significant meets in TSS Aquatic history. Winning an Olympic Bronze Medal in 2016 was a massive highlight for the club and school. Being the #1 GPS swimming school in the last ten years is also obviously brilliant each year as we fight for the win annually. However, everyone involved in the swimming program knows that the ultimate goal is an Olympic gold medal from a TSS (Aquatic) Old Boy, while they still train at TSS.
We are still a way off achieving this, however the results from Adelaide over the weekend showed yet more progress as we continue to move the TSS Swimming program on each year. Grayson Bell (Walker) claimed our first ever TSS (Aquatic) Old Boy National Gold Medal in the 50m Breaststroke on Thursday. Then on Friday Josh Parrish (McKinley) won Gold in the 800m Freestyle and Gold on Saturday in the 1500m Freestyle! Watching the boys progress through the TSS Swimming program has been great, being top of Australia is a superb achievement for both boys.
TSS Aquatic retained the Overall Club Points Trophy, winning the meet for the second time in two years. This is only the second senior championship win in the clubs history.
