Swimming club out to make waves in competition

SWIMMING: Gladstone Souths Swimming Club members will be hungry for medal wins and breaking personal bests when they compete in tomorrow's Gladstone Liquid Energy meet.

The club will have 51 swimmers from age 4-15 in a wide range of events.

Club president Ryan Chinner said he looked forward to the swim meet to see how the club performed against some of the region's best swimmers.

"We have a number of swimmers who will be leading the attack and the club will have a good depth in the competition,” Chinner said.

Brothers Jacob and Caleb O'Mealley will be out to perform well for their club in the 15 years and 14 years age groups.

Caleb recently competed in 100m freestyle national finals and will bring with him valuable experience to help the other swimmers.

Chinner said swimming coach Adam Eiseman was a great asset for the club with his ability to coach swimmers of all ages and ability.

"(Eiseman) is pretty much the credit to the success of the swimming club,” Chinner said.

"There is a great passion for swimming with Adam and he makes a great effort coaching.”

Chinner was also grateful for the Gladstone Gladiators putting on the swim meet.
