South Burnett athlete cleans up at National Masters.

Date: 27 May 2014

Jae Clarke, a proud member of the South Burnett Aussi Masters Swim Team, is a name that stood out at this years MSQ and National Championships, held in the newly renovated South Rockhampton Memorial Pool from 23rd - 26th April 2014.

The Nanango swimmer competed in multiple disciplines over the four days, securing six state medals to his name. Mr. Clarke was awarded the Qld silver medal in the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 50m butterfly and the 50m breaststroke.

Jae also won two national silver medals in his pet event the 50m & 100m backstroke, in doing so he was also crowned the Queensland State Champion for 25-29 year olds.

Jae volunteered his time over the whole week of the Championships, mixing with the other swimmers from other states. Swimming has always been a big part of Jae’s life, and has helped him meet a lot of new friends.

This is Jae's biggest swim meet to date and he is hoping to compete in 2015 Championships, which is to be held in Launceston, Tasmania next April.

Jae began swimming at the age of four at the Beerwah Pool where he met Lane 4 Aquatics CEO, Daniel Mulvey. Daniel was Jae’s squad coach for many years at Mooloolah. Ever since then Jae has been a part of the Lane 4 Aquatics family.

Jae is now training several times a week under the guidance and encouragement of Donna and Joe Dangerfield at the Kingaroy Aquatic Centre.

Congratulations Jae, from your Lane 4 Aquatics family, and from the South Burnett Aussi Masters Swim Team, you have made us very proud.
