At the 2016 State championships Brayden broke the Victorian State records in backstroke and butterfly sealing his position as Victorian Captain for the National championships held in Darwin in September. Despite the competition of the Queensland and NSW swimmers who train and compete relentlessly Brayden continued his winning streak with individual medals in the 200m freestyle, 100m butterfly, 50m butterfly and the 50 freestyle relay. Brayden’s swimming journey commenced at TPS when selected out of the blue by Maesson Harbour to swim for the School when in Year 3. “He came home and told us he had been selected as the Grade 3 and 4 butterfly and freestyle swimmer for the School - we thought there had been a mistake as he had never swum competitively and doubted he could even butterfly” explained his parents. But Brayden’s ability soon became apparent after only six months of swimming when he won the State School championship in 2014 and represented Victoria at the National championships. After winning State championships again in 2015, Brayden was selected to compete in the Pacific School Games in 2015 against all States of Australia and countries including China, India, Pakistan and Fiji, winning individual medals in backstroke, butterfly and freestyle. Brayden not only does well in the water – he’s not bad on land either. He won gold at the School Sport Victoria State track and field championships this year and competed for TPS in the Senior AGSV athletics finals at Lakeside stadium winning the 80m hurdles and 400m events. Brayden represented VIC Metro in School Sports Victoria AFL football this season, and has been selected to represent Victoriain Sydney in November, . And he’s only 12! We can’t wait to see where Brayden goes with his sporting career. Interview with Brayden Miles, Year 6 Leaders in Sport
