Even though you only see our busy workers in action around the pool, they actually get up to a lot more outside Gladstone Aquatic! We have Amber one of our Duty Managers, as well as Sam and Maddi are both trainee lifeguards at Gladstone and they are both aiming to be qualified in their studies in their spare time.

We have Casey who has completed her traineeship units, with Maddi & Sam close behind! Now all they have to do is finish their hours, get them signed off and they will have achieved a completed Certificate III in Sport and Recreation.

Amber began studying at CQ University to be a high school teacher this year and she has now completed her first term achieving Distinctions for all units!

We are so proud of our team, good luck for the rest of the year!

Australia has ended on a high note at the FINA Swimming World Championships (Fri, 12 Jul 2019 – Sun, 28 Jul 2019), winning a mixed 4×100-metre medley relay team by 0.02 seconds against the United States. We also had Ariarne Titmus, Madi Wilson, Brianna Throssell and Emma McKeon achieve Australia’s new world record for the 4x200m women’s relay team which now stands at 7:41.50 — beating the previous time set by the Chinese team at the 2009 world championships!

The image features our Australian mixed 4x100m medley relay team, from left, Mitchell Larkin, Matthew Wilson, Emma Mckeon and Cate Campbell as they celebrate on the podium after their final win at the World Swimming Championships in Gwangju, South Korea. We also had Australian teen Ariarne Titmus, narrowly missed out a gold medal in 200m freestyle final. Titmus, originally from Tasmania, moved to Queensland for better swimming opportunities and look where it has taken her!

Did you know the winning 4×100 mixed medley relay team consisted of the youngest member being 20 years old and the oldest at 27? Proving that you can achieve a lot in competitive swimming from your early teens to your late twenties!
