ALBURY swimmer Brooke King has set herself for a big performance in next month’s Australian Deaf Games after grabbing a swag of medals at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide.

King set two national records on her way to picking up one gold, three silver and three bronze medals.

The two Australian records were the icing on the cake. She swam personal bests in every event

Coach Wayne Gould

Albury coach Wayne Gould said the 13-year-old was going from strength to strength.

“She achieved some sensational results in Adelaide,” Gould said.

“The two Australian records were the icing on the cake.

“She swam personal bests in every event.

“She’s a really likeable person at the club and works so hard.”

Gould said King, who represented Albury in the relay at the Victorian championships in Melbourne earlier this month, was looking forward to the deaf games on the Border in January.

“It’s not far away,” Gould said.

“She should be peaking for that.”

Among the planned sports are athletics, basketball, swimming, tennis, touch football, tenpin bowling and netball.
