Rocky Swimmers at the Australia & New Zealand Police Games

Date: 5 June 2014

First held in 1984, the inaugural Australian National Police Games were founded with the intention of bringing Police Service personnel together under the common banner of sport. This spirit of friendly competition has been expanded to embrace competitors from New Zealand and other Pacific nations.

Rockhampton newly retired police officer Mr. Kit Williams represented Queensland, and he has done it again, medaling at two back to back games.

After medaling at the World Police and Fire Games in Belfast, Northern Ireland in August 2013, the Rockhampton swimmer set his goal to continue his winning spree at the 2014 Australia & New Zealand Police Games, held in Melbourne in April 2014.

Lane 4 Aquatics would like to again congratulate Mr. Williams who took home six medals from six events.

The home of the aquatic competition was the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, in Albert Park. Here Kit secured his silver medals in the 50m Freestyle, 100m Freestyle, 200m Freestyle, 400m Freestyle and 800m Freestyle, therefore he knew he was in good swimming form heading into the open water swim.

The Boulevard, Port Melbourne set the scene on the morning of Tuesday 22nd of April. The only fears in Kit’s mind were of the local sharks that might have been tempted to nibble at the Queenslander. Luckily this was not the case and Kit crossed the finishing line, earning his sixth medal of the games, this time a bronze.

The host city of the 2015 World Police and Fire Game will be Fairfax County, Virginia be in the United States and we hope Kit can continue his glory in the water representing Australia at these games.
