Shamia had never had a formal swimming lesson or entered a swimming competition before she joined Bambigi in 2018. The lessons gave her the confidence to enter her schools swimming competition for the first time. She did so well in freestyle she was picked in her school's junior relay team and they came first at the Zone Swimming Carnival! She kept up with the lessons and a few weeks later they won again at the Regional Swimming competition in Albury. The team went onto the State Swimming championship, giving Shamia the chance to swim at Homebush Olympic Pool. The team place 26th in the State. Piper worked for years to get to the State Champions and Shamia made it after her first try. Well done, we are so proud. It was great to have more Aboriginal kids swimming at the level!
