Waterworx duo in golden sprint swims
TWO Waterworx Swimming Club talents are celebrating their latest successes, including a record-breaking series of performances.
Douglas Weaver, 8, and 13 years competitor Mollie O'Callaghan impressed for the Springfield-based club at last weekend's Brisbane Swimming Association sprint meeting at Chandler.
Douglas won gold in all four strokes over the 50m distances. He's come through the Waterworx learn to swim program.
Mollie broke the BSA record three times on her way to winning two gold, a silver and bronze medal.
Her most outstanding effort was swimming 29.93s in the open 50m backstroke final. That came after she earlier set new 30.12 and 30.11 records in the age group and open heats.
"It was pretty good . . . determination,'' head coach Paul Sansby said, thrilled with Mollie's progress in the pool. "She did a good job.''
She won another gold in the 13 years 50m backstroke, adding a silver in the 50m freestyle and a bronze in the 50m butterfly.
Waterworx swimmers are preparing for the state age sprints in two weeks.
Brother and sister Ethan and Jasmine Harris are also contesting a range of events at this weekend's Northern Territory titles, along with Waterworx teammate Jacinta Ticehurst.
