Have you ever wanted to be taught by an Olympic Medalist? ... we bet you have!
For the first time at Brewer Swimming, Graeme Brewer, Olympic Bronze Medalist will guide people of all ages and abilities through a swimming lesson for The World's Largest Swimming Lesson this Friday 24, June 2016!
"Following a lengthy career in surf lifesaving competition which included Australian Swimming, Ironman and belt Championships, Graeme turned his attention to pool competition and qualified to represent Australia at both the Moscow and Los Angeles Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984, as well as the Commonwealth Games and World Championships in 1978 and 1982. In the swimming pool, winning the 4 x 100m and 4 x 200m relays at the Brisbane 1982 Commonwealth Games were of course significant highlights as a member of the inaugural “Mean Machine”, along with collecting a Bronze medal in his individual 200m Freestyle race in Moscow 1980.
Graeme studied at both UNSW (Civil Engineering), and University of Iowa USA (Sports Administration/Psychology/Physiology) whilst competing internationally, and was the Head Swimming Coach at Pymble Ladies’ College (PLC) from 1984 until 2004. Throughout Graeme’s time as the Head Swimming Coach, PLC won 19 out of 20 IGSSA swimming championships. Graeme also formed Willoughby Swim Club in 1990 which continues to thrive as a platinum level club. While Graeme is tackling a new challenge in sunny Noosa with his old coach John Rodgers (JR), he still is highly involved with Brewer Swimming in Sydney and is very excited about helping the team on 24th June 2016!" - In The Cove
"Brewer’s combination of speed, power and stamina made him one of the finest Freestyle swimmers in the world." - Australian Olympic Committee
