Australia has ended on a high note at the FINA Swimming World Championships (Fri, 12 Jul 2019 – Sun, 28 Jul 2019), winning a mixed 4×100-metre medley relay team by 0.02 seconds against the United States. We also had Ariarne Titmus, Madi Wilson, Brianna Throssell and Emma McKeon achieve Australia’s new world record for the 4x200m women’s relay team which now stands at 7:41.50 — beating the previous time set by the Chinese team at the 2009 world championships!

The image features our Australian mixed 4x100m medley relay team, from left, Mitchell Larkin, Matthew Wilson, Emma Mckeon and Cate Campbell as they celebrate on the podium after their final win at the World Swimming Championships in Gwangju, South Korea. We also had Australian teen Ariarne Titmus, narrowly missed out a gold medal in 200m freestyle final. Titmus, originally from Tasmania, moved to Queensland for better swimming opportunities and look where it has taken her!

Did you know the winning 4×100 mixed medley relay team consisted of the youngest member being 20 years old and the oldest at 27? Proving that you can achieve a lot in competitive swimming from your early teens to your late twenties!

Years Experience: 3 Years
Hobbies: Water polo, Swimming, Surf Lifesaving, Camping

Favourite Colour: Blue
Favourite Quote: “I was born with my heart on my sleeve, a fire in my soul and a
mouth I can’t control.”

What you love about the industry: I love the challenges of working in the Aquatic industry and especially
sharing my passion for the water with children.

Lily Hersey was also selected to participate in the 2019 Breaka Beach Program from the 25th – 31st August apart of the Yeppoon Surf Lifesaving Queensland.

The Breaka Beach to Bush Program offers students in regional areas an introduction to surf lifesaving and the vital surf safety skills required to stay safe in an aquatic environment. Qualified surf lifesavers visit classrooms across the country to deliver surf safety lessons using lifesaving equipment.

The program is designed to increase awareness of the risks associated with the surf and to show children how to minimise these risks. Children from regional communities are often less familiar with the potential dangers of the surf therefore, the program aims to reach those children before they reach the beach.

The program began in Queensland in 1998 and since 2003 other states have adopted the program making it a national initiative. Today it is the largest and most innovative surf education program in Australia reaching more than 60 schools and 10,000 students each year. Congrats Lily, we know you’ll do great!
