MYALL Masters swimmer Chris Lock has been recognised in the NSW Parliament.

Chris is 80 years young and a dedicated community member, volunteering in several community groups and organisations, but is best known for his swimming successes.

Recently Chris represented the Myall Masters Swimming Club at the Masters Swimming Australia National Championship where he walked away with five gold medals and four silver medals, breaking two State records.

Chris broke the record for the 25 metres backstroke and his own State record for the 100 metres backstroke, taking two seconds off his own time.

Member for Port Stephens Kate Washington recently recognised Chris’ success in the NSW Parliament where she provided a Community Recognition Statement to the House, allowing her to speak for a minute about the good work being undertaken by local residents and organisations.

“Where others may see retirement as a time to relax and take on a slower-paced lifestyle, Chris Lock from my electorate of Port Stephens saw it as a challenge,” Ms Washington said.

“Chris recently represented his Myall Club at the National Championships, and he came away with an impressive haul of medals.”

Ms Washington said she was so impressed by Chris’ recent medal haul that she had to share his successes with the House.

“I congratulate Chris who is an inspiring and young-at-heart man,” Ms Washington said.
