Bay and Basin swimming club members Jasmine Greenwood (above right) and Talika Irvine (above left) have both achieved outstanding results at the recent Para and Age swimming championships held in Adelaide.
Jasmine achieved a top-three finish in all four events and in doing so has gained selection to the Australian Swimming Team to compete at the World Para Swimming Championships held in Portugal later this year. Her results also gained her selection to represent Australia at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in England.
Talika competed in five events, placing 5th in the 400m medley and 6th in the 200m medley and was the 1st NSW swimmer in both events. Talika’s performances now put her in contention for selection for NSW Swimming’s performance squads and teams.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said, “I’d like to congratulate Jasmine and Talika on their outstanding swimming achievements.”
“Their results demonstrate a commitment to training and passion for the sport. They should both be very proud of their hard work.”
“On behalf of the Shoalhaven community I’d like to wish them both the very best for their next competition”, said Mayor Findley.
Both Jasmine and Talika train at the Bay and Basin Leisure Centre under Head Coach Stephen Alderman (above centre). Squad training is available at five of Council’s swim facilities and is a great way to develop swimming skills beyond the basics and into the competitive side of the sport.
