Allora swimmer claims two Qld medals
SWIMMING: Allora swimmer Bailey Harm won silver and bronze medals in the Queensland 10-12 years school swimming championships this week at Chandler.
He was nominated for six events but his program was reduced to four after he missed two weeks of school with a ruptured tympanic membrane.
Bailey qualified for finals in all four events and won silver in 11 years 50m backstroke and bronze in the 50m freestyle.
He came fourth in the final of the 100m freestyle and seventh in the final of the 50m breaststroke.
Bailey gained selection in the Queensland team to compete at the national championships in Melbourne during July.
A Scots PGC College student, he trains at the Allora pool under coach Andrew Fidge.
He will train during winter in an indoor pool to prepare for the nationals.
Bailey won gold and a silver at the nationals in Hobart last year.

Warwick West State School student William Day swam in six events at Chandler, including the 200m individual medley.
He finished in the top 20 in 100m breaststroke and set new personal bests in his other five events.
