Strong splash in the pool by tough junior

15 YEAR-OLD Tyler Seagrott just keeps ticking over success, his latest triumph at the 2019 Caribeae Swimming Club’s Beef City Carnival.

Held at the Second World War Memorial Aquatic Centre in Rockhampton, Seagrott competed in a number of races in both the able-body and multi-class categories.

Seagrott has an intellectual disability but it never slows him down in the pool.

His mother, Kym Seagrott said that he competed on the Saturday (October 19) and did very well across the board.

“Tyler competed in 8 races on Saturday, claiming two first place, four second place and a third-place finish.

“ He had the two first place swims in the two 25m events, the four second place finishes in the 50m events and third in the 100m backstroke.

“He also ended up with two PBS.”

The Beef City carnival attracted up and coming junior swimmers from all around Central Queensland including Rockhampton, Gladstone, Yeppoon, Emerald and Emu Park.

Up next Seagrott will compete at the Biloela Bluefins Open Preparation Meet on November 1-2 at the Biloela Aquatic Centre.
