Four of Wagga’s best young talents will dive into the deep end during this weekend’s NSW Short Course Championships meet at Sydney Olympic Park.
Annabella Storer, Kade Knight, Brandy Nicholson and Billy Nicholson have produced impressive qualifying times in the lead up to the state titles and will contest a total of 19 events between them over the weekend.
Storer, 14, is set to compete in seven events including the 100 metres butterfly, a race she claimed gold in during the NSW Short Course Country Championships last month.
Meanwhile, the Nicholson siblings will contest six events between them while 14-year-old Knight has six opportunities to medal in Sydney.
Wagga Swim Club coach Gennadiy Labara is excited to see what his young swimmers can produce on the big stage.
“I think they will go very well,” Labara said.
“They have been training very hard through August in particular and it’s a good opportunity for them.”
The team travel to Sydney on Friday morning.
