Star swimmer set to share skills at WIRAC

SWIMMING: World championship winner and Commonwealth Games medallist Jade Edmistone will coach at the Warwick Indoor and Aquatic Centre tomorrow from noon.

The day has been organised for Warwick Swimming Club members and learn-to-swim students from starfish to dolphin.

Edmistone is making the trip to Warwick instead of current Australian team member Katie Goldman, who is unavailable.

At the 2006 Commonwealth Games Trials in February 2006 in Melbourne, Edmistone set a new personal best in the 100m breaststroke to become the second fastest Australian of all-time and further lowered her own world record in the 50m breaststroke to 30.31sec.

It was the first world record to be set at the new pool built for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Edmistone won a silver medal in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke in Melbourne.

Edmistone will be at WIRAC from noon tomorrow and, as part of the clinic, will be showing all of the participants how to use an exciting piece of equipment that she has designed and developed called ONCORE.
