Manjimup swimmer Brielle Krispyn has achieved selection for the WA Country swimming team.

The team is due to travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, later this year — depending on COVID-19 restrictions — to train with Malaysia’s D Swim Academy, before competing against local Malaysian swimmers at the end of trip.

Brielle said she thought it was cool to be selected to train internationally and she would be disappointed if the trip were to be cancelled.

Her goal for the next year in swimming is to win more medals at State championships, because she believes she wasn’t at her peak at the most recent edition she competed in.

“I want to get faster and get new personal bests and win a few more medals,” she said.

Her coach Hyo Jin Son said she always knew Brielle was destined for success.

Brielle’s mother Denise Krispyn said it was an amazing opportunity for her daughter to be able to swim internationally and to be a part of the WA Country team.
