GRADE 12 student Campbell Miller-Waugh is busier than most in their final year of high school.
Just 10 months after a serious spinal cord injury Campbell was back in the pool, competing in Queensland Secondary School State Championships in all five strokes.
Three days a week Campbell meets with a gym coach for rehabilitation and he has been swimming Monday to Friday.
Now he swims two and a half kilometres per session with a variety of strokes.
Campbell also goes to school five days a week, competes in eisteddfods and plays the clarinet and piano.
"I just want to go back to how it was before the accident as soon as I can," he said.
And with nationals in his sights, there is no stopping him. "At the moment I just want to keep on competing."
While his family lived in Gladstone he was part of the Gladstone Gladiators Swimming Club.
Campbell said his biggest goal continued to be to walk again.
The family lived in Gladstone until 2013, when they moved to Rockhampton.
