Bay and basin swimmers excel at Australian Para and Age Swimming Championships

Bay and Basin Swimming Club members Jasmine Greenwood (top right) and Talika Irvine (top left) both achieved outstanding results at the recent Para and Age Swimming Championships held in Adelaide.

Jasmine finished in the top three in all four events and in doing so was selected to the Australian swimming team to compete in the World Para Swimming Championships held in Portugal later this year. Her results also earned her selection to represent Australia at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in England.

Talika competed in five events, placing 5and in the 400m medley and 6and in the 200m medley and was 1st NSW swimmer in both events. Talika’s performance now puts her in contention for NSW Swimming’s Team and Performance Team selection.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said: “I would like to congratulate Jasmine and Talika on their outstanding swimming performance.

“Their results demonstrate a commitment to training and a passion for the sport. They should both be very proud of their hard work.

“On behalf of the community of Shoalhaven, I would like to wish them the best for their upcoming competition,” said Mayor Findley.

Jasmine and Talika train at the Bay and Basin Leisure Center under head coach Stephen Alderman (above centre). Team training is available at five of the Council’s swimming facilities and is a great way to develop swimming skills beyond the basics and into the competitive side of the sport.
