Geoff Huegill to dive in to Wagga for championships

Former Olympian Geoff Huegill will dive in to Wagga Wagga early next year for the Southern NSW Swimming Championships at the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre.

Wagga Swim Club and Council are hosting the championships on January 9 and 10 at the Oasis, with Huegill to be poolside on the Saturday to meet and greet hundreds of swimmers.

The former Olympian will be attending the event as a Speedo Ambassador.

“It will be a great opportunity for young country regional swimmers to meet and see one of the great’s of Australian Swimming,” Oasis Manager Maurice Eames said.

“Geoff Huegill is a former Olympian and he will be signing autographs, presenting medals to swimmers and talking about his experiences at sport’s elite level.”

Huegill won silver in the 4×100m medley relay and bronze in the 100m butterfly at the 2000 Olympics. He also held the long-course world record in the 50m butterfly from 2000 to 2003.

Wagga Swim Club is expecting more than 300 swimmers at the two-day event, with competitors travelling from across the state for the championships.

With summer under way and the Southern NSW Swimming Championships on the horizon, Oasis will be bubbling with activity over the coming months.

The centre is always a popular spot to keep the kids entertained during school holidays and is also taking bookings for birthday pool parties.

You might also spot the Oasis around the city with a new bus advertising campaign promoting the centre’s various programs.
