The Unisport Swimming Nationals took place at Sydney Olympic Park last week, with #TeamUNSW tearing up the water and representing the black and gold exceptionally well.

Despite having a small team, UNSW performed well beyond their team size, coming away with five medals and some excellent performances across the board.

Alex Quach swept the medal tally, finishing with gold medals in the 50m and 200m butterfly events and bronze medals in the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly.

Felicity Chan took bronze in the 50m breaststroke and had a strong finals showing in the 100m breaststroke.

The UNSW men's medley relay team - comprised of Tom Berryman, Winston Neo, Alex Quach and Alan Paradzik - finished in fifth place after a very competitive swim. 

Tom Berryman and Angus Bolton also put on strong individual performances, with Berryman competing in the finals for the 50m and 100m backstroke and Bolton making the finals for the 200m butterfly, 200m breaststroke and 200m freestyle.

UNSW finished in 10th place overall for the event, coming in well ahead of their next placed competitor to emphatically round out the top 10 universities.

Our swimmers will now enjoy a well-earned break to rest and recover, before getting back into the pool and training for the upcoming season.
