A LOT of hard work and sacrifice has resulted in Kwinana Swimming Club member Max Coten achieving his goal.

The ambitious 14-year-old wanted to make the National Open Water Swimming Championships.

Not only did he make the 5km event for this season, he has already qualified for the 7.5km event next season as well.

Max began swimming open water races four years ago with his father chaperoning him in local races.

Head coach Kareena Preson said she was looking forward to seeing how Max develops with open water swimming.

“He has a real passion for it,” she said.
