Swimmer Zac Incerti has had a mercurial rise to swimming success. Originally from Broome, Zac took up competitive swimming at UWA-West Coast at age 18 and hasn’t looked back since.
Zac first made a name for himself by earning a spot on the men’s 4x100m freestyle relay team alongside household names Kyle Chalmers and Cameron McEvoy, with fellow rising star Jack Cartwright.
Zac was also awarded Swimming WA’s Life Members Trophy for his performance at the State Open and Age Long Course Championships in May this year.
Speaking with Perth’s 6PR radio, Zac explained his current state of training heading into the Commonwealth Games next year.
“We’ve just finished a pretty big gym block now, and we’re just getting into the speed stuff heading into trials, which is early March. We’re all just trying to get as fast as we can beforehand. It’s been a good preparation.”
The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held on the Gold Coast from April 4-15, with 18 sports represented including swimming, triathlon, table tennis, netball, hockey, Rugby Sevens and weightlifting.
