NSWIS Junior Swimmers Selected in National Teams

Posted on May 26, 2022 by

A strong contingent of NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) swimmers and network coaches have been selected onto the 2022 Junior Dolphins and Australia A teams.

Swimming Australia announced Bella Grant, Olivia Wunsch, Haig Buckingham and Daniel McLoughlin as members of the Junior Dolphins to compete at the 2022 Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Hawaii in August. Michaela Pattinson and Benjamin Tuxford will travel as coaches.

Shaun Champion and Mathew Galea were selected to compete for Australia A at the US National Championships in California in July along with Amanda Isaac as supporting coach.

The teams were selected following performances at last week’s Australian Swimming Championships in Adelaide, as well the Australian Age Championships in April.

Swimming Australia High Performance Director, Tamara Sheppard, congratulated the athletes on their selection.

“The standard of performances we’ve seen from our pathway athletes, both at trials last week and the Australian Age Championships in April, is a reflection of the depth in Australian swimming and a testament to their commitment across a challenging period through the pandemic,” Tamara said.

“This cohort have been denied international racing opportunities for more than two years and so the chance to tackle these meets is not only exciting for the athletes, it’s also a critical part of their high performance athlete development.”

“I’m certain they will relish the opportunity and represent themselves, their families and their country with pride.”
