Daniel Tranter and local swimmers

​Olympian and Commonwealth champion Daniel Tranter recently visited Bankstown to give talented local swimmers tips and advice.

The 24-year-old won gold for Australia in the 200-metre individual medley at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

He also contested the 2012 Olympics in London where he qualified for the semi-finals of the same event.

The South West Sydney-born athlete spoke to more than 50 swimmers at Max Parker Leisure and Aquatic Centre about his swimming success in a bid to inspire them before they competed at the Metro South West Area Open and Age Championships.

He said the best advice he could give them was to never give up.

"I was lucky to have a coach who never let me do just one stroke so I was stuck with doing all the individual medleys and all the open waters," Tranter said.

“That's why I don't believe in putting all your focus in one stroke.

“If you're bad at something, you should find a way to be good at it.”

One of the swimmers lucky enough to hear from Tranter was 10-year-old Blake Rowlands.
“I was inspired,” Blake said.

“I was really excited to hear what he had to say.

"Listening to Daniel's achievements has made me want to become a champion swimmer."​
