“I love the camaraderie of BBC Swimming and being part of a team that trains hard, supports progress and celebrates achievements. I have enjoyed competing in GPS Swimming since Year 7 and as the years have gone by the culture and spirit of the BBC Squad just keeps getting better and better. There is no other crowd like GPS Swimming and there is no greater feeling than when the boys shout your name as you walk up to the blocks. I am proud to be the Captain of BBC Swimming” – Bryce B, Captain of Swimming
