Kingscliff swim stars come out to sign
KINGSCLIFF'S swimming stars, including golden girl Sophie Edington, will turn out for a club fundraiser at the Poolside Kingscliff Pool and Spa shop on Saturday from 11am-1pm.
Edington and fellow national squad members Tayliah Zimmer and Ethan Rolff will be available to sign swimming caps at the fundraiser, which will include a sausage sizzle, for the club's aged-group squad.
Edington, who won gold at the world swimming short course championships in Montreal in August as part of the 4x100m women's medley, and her fellow senior swimmers returned to the pool recently after a few weeks' break.
The focus is now on preparing for the Commonwealth Games trials in January.
Meanwhile, the club's younger swimmers are also back in the pool after their success at the Queensland short course aged championships.
Club coach Lea Speachley welcomes two new swimmers - Kate Brennan, 14, and Johnny Otton, 15, of Sydney to her 12-member squad, whose big goal is to prepare for the Australian aged championships in Sydney next April.
