New focus on swimming in Queensland
Promising young Queensland swimmers will have better access to talent identification and high-performance services with a doubling of funding from $2 million to $4 million through the Queensland Academy of Sport.
The QAS will work closely with Swimming Australia at new high-performance hubs in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Talented swimmers will have access to QAS sports scientists, physiotherapists, nutritionists and psychologists to maximise their potential.
QAS will continue its partnership with Swimming Queensland in order to identify great swimming talent and help with developing coaching talent across the state.
The new investment in swimming is designed to get more Queenslanders on the Olympic and Paralympic medal dais at Paris, Los Angeles and then Brisbane 2032.
