Thirty-six of Australia’s best young swimmers have been selected to compete at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival (AYOF) in Sydney this January, in a meet that has proven to be a strong pathway to Olympic selection. Our very own Australian record holder Damian Fyfe (Perth City) is the sole WA representative to be selected in this prestigious team.

The 2013 AYOF to be held from January 16-20 at Sydney Olympic Park, will see swimmers aged between 13 and 17 compete against the likes of China, New Zealand, Brazil, Hungary, Canada, Japan and a combined Oceania team.

Well done Damo. It is these rewards that are so self deserving from your commitment and training goals. Best of luck.

Congratulations also to Ian Mills (super coach) on Damo’s selection.
