Five NSWIS Swimmers and Two Coaches Named on Australian Swim Teams

Posted on May 23, 2022 by

NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) athletes Abbey Connor, Se-Bom Lee, Matthew Wilson and William Yang and coach Adam Kable are amongst a host of Australian swimming stars selected in the Dolphins team for the upcoming FINA World Championships.

Swimming Australia has selected a team of 39 for next month’s meet in Budapest, including 11 rookies named to their first Australian team.

The four NSWIS athletes along with Bradley Woodward and coach Chris Nesbit were also selected to compete as part of the Australian Commonwealth Games team in Birmingham.

The squads were selected at the conclusion of this week’s Australian Swimming Championships at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Adelaide.

Swimming Australia CEO, Eugénie Buckley, congratulated the selected athletes, expressing her pride on behalf of the broader swimming community.

“Our team’s Olympic campaign in Tokyo inspired a nation and from the performances we’ve witnessed this week at trials it’s clear how driven our athletes are to build on that success,” Buckley said.

“These World Championships are the first step on the path to Paris and I have no doubt our Dolphins will continue to set the benchmark on that journey.”

“It’s wonderful to see a mixture of our established leaders, and the joy of those experiencing selection on an Australian team for the first time and I’m sure each and every athlete will do us proud.”

“Swimming is synonymous with the success of Australian teams at the Commonwealth Games and this team will undoubtedly add to that legacy in Birmingham,” Buckley said.

The Dolphins will travel to Europe in early June for a staging camp before the World Championships in Budapest from June 18-25.
