Pioneer Dolphin Madison Malagueno’s Magic Start To 2023

Madison Malagueno, Pioneer Dolphin, has come leaps and bounds and grown to be a strong and confident swimmer under the mentoring of Coach Igor.  

Her year has started off with a bang, having competed in three State level events in February and another to come at the end of March, swimming in not only pool but open water competitions.  

Madison represented Capricornia School Sport at the Queensland State Aquathlon in Hervey Bay on February 4.

The Aquathlon event for 11–12-year-old age group saw children from across the state tackle a 1km run, 200m swim, 1km run.

Madison placed 3rd in the 11-year-old age group and 20th in the age bracket.

The following weekend, Madison travelled to the Brisbane Aquatic Centre for the Queensland Sprint Championships on February 11-12.

Madison did the club proud, medalling in the freestyle event – 3rd in the state for her age group.

She ranked highly in a field of over 200 swimmers for her other strokes also.

She then competed in the Youth State Championships for Surf Lifesaving Queensland in Mooloolaba from February 16-19.

Madison was selected to represent the North Barrier Branch (clubs from Forrest Beach to Sarina, her club being Eimeo Surf Lifesaving Club) in both beach and water events.

Madison proudly sports two gold medals for her beach sprints in the mixed and all female relay teams.  

Madison has also been selected to represent Capricornia School Sport at the Swimming State Championships at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre to be held on March 26-28.

We are truly proud of you Madison and are equally excited for you and what your future holds.
