Queensland Academy of Sport to double funding for swimming

By on October 7, 2021 0

The Queensland Academy of Sport will double its funding for swimming in Queensland to $ 4 million in an effort to provide better access to talent identification and high performance services. The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) will work closely with Swimming Australia in new high performance centers in Brisbane and on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.

Queensland Sports Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said “We want to give Queensland’s talented young swimmers their best chance of winning a medal on the world stage by recognizing their skills and accelerating access to high performance services. .

“The high performance centers will enhance the winning services offered to swimmers, including sports science, physiotherapy, nutritionists and psychologists.

“As we head to Paris, Los Angeles and the Brisbane 2032 Games, QAS looks forward to working with Swimming Queensland and Swimming Australia to win more medals.”

Minister Hinchliffe added that the QAS partnership with Swimming Queensland would remain incredibly important and commented “our partnership with Swimming Queensland will continue to help identify great swimming talent and coach talent across the state.

“The funding for Swimming Queensland has not been cut, it remains the same that was in place for the Olympic cycles in Rio and Tokyo, but now with better access to expert performance services.

“Our goal is to provide every athlete with the opportunity to succeed and inspire Queenslanders.”
