BSA swimmer, Dylan Logan has been kept busy over the past month, in between speaking at the Bis Sport Breakfast, breaking a few records, adding a few more personal best times to his growing list and making a trip to Brazil.


After representing Victoria at the SSA Swimming championships in July, the 16-year-old has recently had a great performance at Swimming Victoria Country Championships Short Course in Ballarat. Dylan came home with 5 medals; in the multi class 3 bronze medals in the 50metre breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly and 5th place in the backstroke. While in the able bodied, Dylan won silver in the 100-metre butterfly and bronze in the 400-metre individual medley. He also had 8 other top ten performances; four fourth place finishes in the 100m freestyle & individual medley for 16/17 age group and in the 200m butterfly and 200m individual medley in the open age. On top of that he also finished 5th in the open age 200m breaststroke, 6th in the 16/17 age 200m freestyle and two 8th places in the 100m backstroke and breaststroke.

Prior to such an excellent performance, Dylan stopped in at GMHBA Stadium for the BSA’s 9th annual Bis Sport Breakfast to have a chat with Geelong Cats great Billy Brownless. The pair spoke about Dylan’s hearing impairment and the strategies he uses to overcome issues that can arise, as well as his next big competition representing Australia at the 5th World Deaf Swimming Championships in Brazil. He also mentioned of some of his most memorable moments around swimming competitions and his move over from South Africa in 2015. To top of a great morning for Dylan, he also managed to take out first prize in the Bis Sport raffle, a signed and framed Geelong Cats 2019 jumper.


Dylan headed off to Brazil last Friday to compete at the World Deaf Swimming Championships and has just finished up racing, so we excited to hear how he went!


Well Done Dylan!!
