Wagga’s Meg Senior has one mission this week at nationals in Brisbane – to qualify for the state swim team again. 

The 13 year-old will race in four individual and two team heats from Tuesday to Friday, and if she qualifies for a final, she gains automatic acceptance on the team.

She’s raring to continue with the program.

“​It’s awesome, the access she has to top-level coaching and ideas,” her mum, Kelli Senior, said.

“A dozen coaches from all the top clubs are able to focus individually on the kids.”

Despite swimming personal bests at a competition two weeks ago, Senior’s nervous about the week ahead. 

“She’s definitely feeling self-pressured nerves,” Kelli said.

Senior will race in the 100m and 200m backstroke, 50m and 100m freestyle and the 4x50m freestyle and medley relay events for Ginninderra Swim Club.
