In addition, Jake competed at the Swimming Australian National Age Championships in Adelaide during the summer school holidays. Over six days of competing, he raced in sixteen heats/finals across 8 events and achieved a Personal Best in all of them, something that is extremely hard to do at a national companionship. An outstanding achievement that he can be so proud of after all his hard work training and the dedication required to compete at this level successfully.
