Bailey Selected In Qld Swim Team
Allora swimmer Bailey Harm has had a successful summer of swimming, having returned from the Queensland (Qld) Championships held in Brisbane last month with a flush of medals.
As part of the Qld Regional Relays, Bailey anchored the DDRSA 15 and over 4 x 50m Freestyle Relay to swim the team home for Gold.
In his individual events, Bailey took the state Silver in the 50m and 100m Freestyle and Bronze in the 50m Breaststroke.
Bailey’s success at the State Championships led to his selection in the Qld Swimming Country Team of 12 from across the state to travel to Adelaide for the South Australia Open Championships.
Bailey swam the 50 and 100m Freestyle and Breaststroke events as well as the 50m Butterfly. Bailey has been on the blocks alongside some of Australia’s best also competing at this event including Kyle Chalmers and Matt Temple.
In Adelaide, Bailey swam in four relays, bringing home Gold alongside his Qld Team mates in the 4 x 50 Freestyle and 4 x 50 Medley Relays and Bronze in the 4 x 100m Freestyle relay.
Bailey swam the lead-off in a 52 second personal best time.
Prior to his departure to Adelaide, Bailey also competed at the WP Kemp Memorial Sprints in Gatton, winning all four events, breaking two pool records in the 15 years 50 Free and 50 Fly and taking out the WP Kemp Sprint Final for the second year.
Bailey will now focus on the school swimming pathway and Qld Sprint Championships before the Swimming Australia Age National Championships on the Gold Coast in April.
