Beaver is an F-Teamer!

28 February 2018

Josh Beaver is now a F-Teamer!

We're excited to welcome to the Funky Trunks F-Team, Australian triple Commonwealth Games medalist and 2016 Olympian, Josh Beaver!

The backstroke specialist hails from the small coastal town of Tooradin in Eastern Victoria. He started swimming at the age of 6 months as a cure for asthma and joined the Casey Tiger Sharks at 10. He qualified for his first nationals at 13 and in 2014 made his first senior Australian Team for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, claiming two silver and a bronze medal.

Having missed out on qualification for London 2012 by 0.2 of a second, Josh turned his disappointment into motivation and through hard work and determination cemented himself a spot on the 2016 Rio Olympic team. He raced the 100m and 200m backstroke finishing 13th and 10th respectively.

Beaver has recently started training at the Northcote Swimming Club under head coach and 2008 Olympic backstroker Ashley Delaney and is inspiring a whole new crew of young swimmers with his intense training schedule and charming smile!
