Anti Wave helps drive Australian swimmers’ achievements at the Tokyo Olympics
Welcoming the remarkable achievements of Australian swimmers at the Tokyo Olympics over the first nine days of the 2020 Games, leading aquatic industry supplier Anti Wave has highlighted its history of supporting Olympians from Brisbane’s St Peters Western Swim Club by supplying its Australian designed, top performance swimming, pool programming and pool deck equipment to the Club’s high performance training centre.
The Indooroopilly-based St Peters Western Swim Club has in recent years become Australia’s premiere high performance swimming club, sending no less than six athletes to the Tokyo Olympics, including the legendary double Tokyo Gold medal winning Olympian Ariarne ‘Arnie’ Titmus.
With a strong focus on high performance swim training and development, the Club is coached by Dean Boxall - one of swimming’s so called ‘rockstar coaches’ and who was back-to-back Age Coach of the Year and Youth Coach of the Year at the Australian Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association (ASCTA) Awards.
Anti Wave supplied key equipment in 2010 when the Club’s facility was re-built; transitioning from a basic skimmer type pool to an international standard ‘wet deck’ or overflow type competition pool, complete with industry leading Anti Wave MAXI Racing Lanes, Moveable Track Start Blocks, Overflow Pool EndWalls, SwimWalls,Overflow Gratings, and Pool deck equipment.
St Peters Western Swim Club acts as a key research and development facility for Anti Wave, with focus on product innovation and development through direct Coach and Swimmer feedback.
Key product innovations include the development of the next generation of Moveable Track Start Blocks, for which Anti Wave holds priority Patents. The Moveable TrackStart Blocks are a key innovative design feature now included in the Starting Block model used at the Tokyo Olympics.
Anti Wave products supplied the St Peters Western Swim Club include:
- Anti Wave MAXI Swimming Racing Lanes - featuring industry leading Patented design and wave dissipation technology
- Moveable TrackStart Blocks - an Anti Wave priority Patent, as used at the Tokyo Olympics
- Anti Wave Submersible SwimWall System - innovative pool programmability
- Anti Wave EndWall System - for Overflow Pool Management and Starting Block installation
- Anti Wave Overflow Gratings - for increased pool depth and reduced water turbidity
Anti Wave remains committed at the ground level to the support and development of swim and polo clubs & facilities around the world, with a strong focus on product innovation and development, and the best possible availability to all clubs and pools.
Anti Wave has over 50 years of world leading aquatics innovation and product development, and Anti wave products and designs have been exported to over 150 countries since 1972.
St Peters Western Swim Club is based at St Peters Lutheran College at Indooroopilly and is led by Head Coach Dean Boxall.
