Congratulations to the students who received medals and to those who have qualified for the Queensland Short Course State Titles, which take place from 13 – 15 August. 

Kudos goes to Mason Mower, who competed in various events, often above his age category and gained valuable experience in the water and was crowned an Age Champion at the meet. This is a huge honour and very well deserved.    

 If these kids keep it up, we might see them on their way to 2026 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.  Every King’s Kid did their best, they were up against the best that the Gold Coast had to offer, and boy did they leave it all in the pool,” stated Mrs Harrison.

The King’s family is extremely proud of all our swimmers and the outstanding results they have achieved this year.
