CANNING Vale’s Harrison Hynes is among 13 athletes from Perth life saving and swim clubs who will compete in this week’s National Pool Life Saving Championships in Adelaide.

Fifteen-year-old Harrison is a member of the Southside Penhros Wesley Swim Club and Breakers Lifesaving Club at the Craigie Leisure Centre.

The WA team will be led by coach Sarah Hamilton, who said they were really excited to have many new members in the team this year, along with strong competitors from previous years.

“The quality of the athletes at the trials was excellent and we want to thank all those who attended,” she said.

“We’re quietly confident that the team we’ve taken to Adelaide will accomplish big things for us.”

Those competing in the Australian Pool Life Saving Championships have the chance to earn a place in the national Aussie Burras team.
