Tom selected to take part in the WRAS Lone Star program

Grenfell Amateur Swimming Club swimmer Tom Robinson has continued his success from throughout the year by being selected in a coveted program.

Tom is one of only a select group of swimmers selected to participate in the Western Region Academy of Sport Lone Star program.

The WRAS Lone Star program is tailored for athletes who are at the level of representing NSW or higher and are between 15 to 18 years of age.

The program is designed to assist pre-elite youth athletes in any sport, who are living or attending school in the western region.

"As part of the program, Tom will receive strength and conditioning and injury prevention programs through PhyzX in Orange as well as educational seminars," Tom's mother Liz Robinson said.

Tom's family aren't the only ones proud of his accomplishment in being selected with his fellow Grenfell Amateur Swimming Club members also cheering him on with his selection.

Earlier this year Tom competed at the State and National swimming championships with a lot of success and several medals picked up along with besting his personal best records.

During the off-season Tom was travelling to Cootamundra to train with the Cootamundra club to ensure he was in the best position when he competed at Sydney and Melbourne for the state and national titles.

Tom Robinson has been selected to take part in the Western Region Academy of Sport Lone Star program for 2020.
