Jake Michel's first Australian Dolphins tour produced great results. Jake finished 4th in his 100m Breaststroke event against world class opposition and although it was not his best time, Jake's 1:07.88 in the final was an Oceania Record. As well as this Jake was able to gain extremely valuable experience that will be very helpful as he chases his dream of the Tokyo Paralympics next year. (Race recording available on Facebook)



CJ's hosted the annual Clem Jones Memorial Carnival on Sunday the 8th of September. The day was very successful for our swimmers who achieved 8 medals and many PB's. A big thank you goes to our many volunteers who made the day possible.



Jake flew out to Manchester, England on Friday (30/08/19) to begin his training camp with the Australian Dolphins Team. After a week of camp the team will fly into London and compete in the 2019 Para World Swimming Championships. Keep up to date with how he performs via Facebook. GOOD LUCK JAKE!!!
