TSS Swimming – Gold Coast Championships

Liam du Feu | Director of Swimming

Team TSS caught the eye at last weekend’s Gold Coast Championships

  • 86 swimmers took over two corners of the pool at Southport and competed in the bold white cap over two days, winning 93 medals and setting 6 records. This deluge of medals reflects a huge number of best ever swims, including 83 best times from the Hammerheads.
  • Thanks to all parents who filled timekeeping slots over the weekend, it really is a Team effort and everybody’s contribution makes all the difference. Special thanks to those parents and swimmers who did extra slots and to Tanya Capra who came in even though Isabelle was sick and to Darcy Cole for doing a lane when she wasn’t even swimming J
  • Coaches Mandy, Mel and Jody should be congratulated for guiding the Blacktip and Crocodile Sharks through their first ever Gold Coast Championships with aplomb…your swimmers are so confident they made it look easy! Have a look at these photos of our Blacktips having a great time…
  • Our Junior Swimmers stood out as smartly dressed, organised and noisy J – we received lots of feedback from the Officials about how well behaved you are and how loud you were cheering on your team mates – great job

Team TSS marches on to the Queensland Short Course Championships next weekend and our younger swimmers have two Club Nights to look forward to (11th August and 25th August). Its all go here so make sure you keep up your training…


DT’s tip for the week is to smile

Smiles are infectious and you can change the feeling of your session, by smiling at your squad mates – I bet they smile back

Better still research a funny joke and come in and share it with the group and your coach. There will be a prize for the best joke I hear over the next few days…


World University Games

Good luck to Josh Parrish, Kai Edwards, Laura Taylor and Kiah Melverton who fly to Taiwan next week to compete for Australia at the World University Games. Our four swimmers will be competing in events from the 100m freestyle to the 10km open water swim…go Team TSS.


Thought for the week

“Everyday is filled with time and excuses, which one are you choosing to use today?” LG Fries.

Go and make it happen today, tell jokes to your team mates and your coach, have fun have your best ever session in the pool – it really is up to you.
