As they say as one door closes andother door opens.

This week has just been that for two Perth City swimmers.

Whilst Raife has experienced first first ever Australian Age Championships, Montana says goodbye to the Age leIMG_1537vel.

As a twelve year old Raife qualified for a creditable 6 events this year. Although an eye opening experience the week has been well worth it. Taking lots of knoweldge home Raife said, “I need to make a lot of changes byt one thing I don’t need to change is my effort.”

The other end of the line is a farewell to Montana. This will be her final swim at the Age group level. An emotional time to leave the age group level and also to coach Ian whom has been her coach for several years.

But exciting times ahead as Montana is now back in the water and training in preparation to return to Adelaide in a week for the Australian Open Championships. Best of luck Montana.
