Royal Life Saving WA congratulates staff member Carys Munks, who recently claimed several medals at the Masters National Swimming Championships in Adelaide. Carys was competing with her club the Superfins WA, which is a swimming club that caters for people with disabilities.

Carys Munks by the pool after competing in AdelaideCarys has been involved with Royal Life Saving WA since completing workplace learning at our Mount Claremont office in 2012 while she was a student at John XXIII’s Mary Ward Centre. She came in once a week to assist in our marketing and fundraising department and was such a great asset that we then employed her part-time in 2013.

Carys has been a member of the Superfins since 2006, and her love of swimming was a part of the reason she chose Royal Life Saving WA as a location to complete her work experience while at school. She did exceptionally well at the recent championships taking home medals in the following events:

  • Bronze – 200m Backstroke
  • Bronze – 200m Individual Medley
  • Silver – 4 x 50m Women’s Freestyle Relay
  • Gold – 4 x 50m Mixed Medley Relay - in which Carys swam the Butterfly leg


The Superfins WA Club also did extremely well as a collective, awarded the President’s Trophy for Winning Club with 21 – 50 members.The Superfins team outside HBF Stadium
