Hornsby Swimming Representatives

25 September 2018

Mr MATT KEAN (Hornsby—Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation) (13:29): Today I am proud to congratulate a number of young Hornsby swimmers who have represented New South Wales at the Australia Swimming Championships in Hobart. Jensen Goodchild from Berowra Public School, Joseph Kim from Thornleigh West Public School, James Burt from Mount Colah Public School and Ian Kim from Hornsby North Public School all travelled to Hobart to swim for New South Wales. Jensen Goodchild, who was recently named NSW Primary Schools Sports Association swimming team captain, finished third in the 200 metres individual medley. Joseph Kim received gold medals for the 50 metres butterfly, 100 metres backstroke and 4 x 50 metres freestyle relay; silver medals for the 50 metres freestyle, 50 metres backstroke and the 4 x 50 metres medley relay; and one bronze medal for the 100 metres breaststroke.

James Burt finished fourth in the 50 metres butterfly and fifth in the 50 metres backstroke. He took home a silver medal in the 4 x 50 metres medley relay and a bronze medal for the 4 x 50 metres freestyle relay. Ian Kim was part of the New South Wales relay team that won a bronze medal. Additionally, Ian also competed in the junior breaststroke event and finished in fifth place. Jensen, Joseph, James and Ian have done Hornsby proud. I am sure this will not be the last we hear of these amazing swimmers as they continue to smash records in the pool.
