Anderson tests comeback waters

By RACHAEL BORICH

A FAMILIAR face has shown his class alongside some of Central Queensland's rising swim stars at the annual Tro- pic of Capricorn carnival at Rockhampton's World War II Memorial Pool at the weekend.

Swim of the meet was pre- sented to former CQ Aquajet star, and Australian World Cup swimmer, Ashley Anderson.

Brisbane-based Anderson, 21, clocked an impressive time of 24.16s to win his 50m freestyle event ahead of a competitive CQU Rocky City swimmer, Adam Eiseman (24.97).

Anderson's personal best time before retirement was 23.30. Anderson has been back in the water only for about two weeks after a two-year break.

CQ Aquajets coach, and An-derson's sister, Carmen Ander- son, said her brother was tak- ing it a day at a time.
