Eiseman puts up hand to swim for Maroons



NO-ONE will accuse local swimmer Adam Eiseman of not showing his true colours when he competes at the annual State of Origin swimming event in Caboolture tomorrow.

Eiseman, formerly of the Western Suburbs Swimming Club will swim in four events at the 17-18 years age level for the Maroons.

The talented swimmer will contest the 50 metre freestyle, 100 metre backstroke, 100 metre breaststroke and 100 metre IM (Individual Medley). Eiseman is now a member of the CQU Rocky City swim club and has enjoyed his change of scenery.

Club coach Shane Kingston has been impressed with his Gladstone charge's continued improvement in his times since he joined the Rockhampton-based club in January.

'Adam is swimming very well at the moment, I have been really happy with his form,' Kingston said.

'For him to qualify for the state team for this Origin swim is a great effort.'

Kingston added the Origin event is being taken seriously by Queensland Swimming, with the Maroons captained by Olympians Ashley Callus and Jessicah Schipper.

'Ashley and Jessicah are top swimmers and everyone who is involved is keen on beating New South Wales,' he said. Gregor Mactaggart
