Age Nationals Wrap Up

20 April 2015

We've had a massive couple of weeks in the pool with Open Nationals being directly followed by Age Nationals.

The races have been swum and won, and we're extremely proud of our athletes performances.


Age Nationals produced some super impressive swims and a fantastic overall result for our F-Team. Our F-Team Medal count for the event was 35 medals with 26 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze. Our Funkita girls had a huge meet, and you don't have to look far to find standout individual performances with Kaylee McKeown and Shayna Jack collecting 4 gold each,  Ami Matsuo, Gemma Cooney and Ariarne Titmus scoring 3 gold each and Sarah Beale and Ella Bond collecting 2 and 1 gold respectively. Adding to the impressive tally of golds by our F-Teamers, Antonia Hurd added a silver medal with a great swim finishing 2nd behind Kaylee in the final of the Girls 12/13 200m Back and Monique Rae also finished off the event with a silver and a bronze. Well done girls, you smashed it!

From these results, 5 Funkita girls have been selected for the Australian team to travel to World Junior Championships in Singapore later in the year.  Congratulations to Ella Bond, Gemma Cooney, Shayna Jack, Lucia Lassman, and Ariarne Titmus. Super effort girls!


Our British girls are also getting the job done with strong performances at the British National Championships, doubling as the selection trials for the Great Britain team heading to World Championships. The meet saw Molly Renshaw and Sophie Taylor each bring home gold, with fellow F-Teamers Aimee Willmott and Darcy Deakin also featuring in the medals.  Now begins the anxious wait while the selectors make their final decisions on who will make the team for World Champs.

With so much happening in April, you'd think it would be hard to match in May, but we've got plenty of F-Teamers in action.  May is full of diving events, starting with the Australian Diving Championships, featuring newly signed F-Teamer Melissa Wu.


Don't forget, we'll keep you updated on all the F-Team results here and on our Facebook page
