LIVESTREAM: Don’t miss Fraser Coast's swim stars in action

SWIMMING: Marcus Elder and the Fraser Coast swim club will send a team of 20 swimmers to the Gympie Gold Rush this Saturday.

The club is one of three Fraser Coast Swimming club that is sending swimmers to the event.

Elder was recognised at the Queensland short course championships earlier this year for his contribution to the career of Australian Dolphins Swim Team representative Keira Stephens.

The team this weekend will consist mainly of younger swimmers or swimmers new to the club.

"This meeting is about race experience for our young swimmers," Elder said.

For most of the swimmers this will one of their first if not their first race meet.

"I am confident all swimmers will do well," he said.

The team will send some experienced swimmers who are searching for state sprint times.

Elder is concerned about the predicted forecast of 40 degrees for Saturday afternoon.

He does not know what effect it may have on some of the swimmers.

The Fraser Coast Chronicle will be live-streaming the swimming races on Saturday.
