Miles ahead Grant Edwards HEAD down in the water, there is no better way to clear the mind according to Miles Tollan. “A mate of mine in Sydney said squad training was like a $10 session with a shrink. You don’t get that kind of value on Medicare,” he laughed. The Buderim 47-year-old will be on the 2.5km swim start line at this weekend’s Mooloolaba Beach Festival. Moving to the Coast three years ago from Sydney with wife Amy and their three kids, it was life on the Northern Beaches which inspired his love affair with swimming. While learning to swim growing up in the United Kingdom, it wasn’t until living in Hong Kong with his parents that he found an affection for the water. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Inspired by social competition FROM PAGE 1

Returning to the UK in adulthood, the swimming stopped, but Tollan met Amy in London and they return to Australia in 2005. Warmer weather and the chance to swim at Sydney’s prestigious beaches inspired his sporting ambition. “I was not a competitive swimmer. I swam a little, but swimming is always there ready to welcome you back,” Tollan said. “It’s like your life partner who puts up with all your crap. The pool will always welcome you back no matter how far you have strayed. “It was remarkable how easy it was to find your feet again. “What attracted me was the social side combined with that competitive thing…being a middle-aged has-been, I feel the rush of competitive blood through my body.” This Saturday he’ll compete in the 45–49 age group – “that is where all the anger is, and all the throbbing testosterone, forget the elites”. Earlier this month Tollan, who works as an analyst with the Cerebral Palsy League, completed the 5km event at the Noosa Summer Swim in 1:08:32.5. He tries to train three times a

performance improvement. “It gets me ready for the day. If I haven’t swum in the morning I’m never as much fun at work. “It keeps me fit and provides a social outlet, you can get a good

workout in 45 minutes, have a coffee and you can get on with your weekend or day without being completely exhausted. “If you are trying to juggle a busy life that model works really well.”

Standing proud of an iconic achievement MILES Tollan rates himself as a normal bloke and an average swimmer. He just happens to have swum the English Channel. While in Sydney he was among a group of four who trained for 18 months to complete the 32km journey. “The day was pretty tough. I took over 15 hours for a swim on paper I would have hoped to do in 13. It shows how the conditions affect your performance,” Tollan said. “Once you are in the water and have adjusted to the cold, it really is a battle between you and your willpower.” The official time he posted was 15hr 20min during 2014, with the water temperature at 16 degrees. For the swim to count, those undertaking the challenge cannot Miles Tollan before his wear a wetsuit – just standard togs. Looking back fondly at the successful English Channel achievement, Tollan said it was an swim in 2014. PHOTO: CONTRIBUTED achievable feat for most athletes.

“Anyone can swim for 15 hours, most choose not to. The Channel is a doable thing. You don’t have to be a great swimmer,” he said. “If you can say ‘I have swum the Channel’ it is such an iconic event that it answers itself as an achievement. I love all the attention I get from people who have asked me about it. “I have a lot of admiration for those who complete the Channel and then go on to more and more ocean swim marathons. For me my scratch is well and truly itched. I am very happy with a 45-minute swim now.” Dedicated to a gruelling training schedule which included many long swims in cold water, he added more than 10kg to his frame to prepare for the cold. “Everyone finds a different challenge. My challenge was the difficulty contending with the cold,” Tollan said. “Four months in sh*tty cold

Mooloolaba Beach Festival

Klim’s at home in the water Layne Whitburn

HE’S AN Olympic swimming gold medallist, world champion, and former world record-holder, but don’t ask Michael Klim to go stand-up paddle boarding. “I am not designed for stand-up paddling, I’m too top heavy,” he said, laughing. Klim is the ambassador of the World Swim Series and the first Mooloolaba Beach Festival (previously called the Mooloolaba Mile) on February 17–18. The World Swim Series features all kinds of beach experiences from swimming to paddling, sand sculptures and beach yoga. “I always like to get involved in as many activities as I can, but I think I’ll be watching the paddle boarding event,” Klim said. More than 10 years after hanging up his Olympic swimming suit, Klim still loves the sport which was his livelihood from the early ’90s until his retirement in 2007. “I get in the pool around three times a week, which is nothing compared to the 10 times I used to train, but it’s still enough,” he said. Nowadays Klim’s time is less consumed by the pool and more by his three children, Stella, 12, Rocco, 9, and Frankie, 5, as well as his international business, Milk & Co. Despite claiming he is “more comfortable in the water than on land”, the success of his skincare business argues otherwise. Starting out as a marine-based skin fitness range for men in 2008, one year after Klim’s swimming retirement, Milk & Co. now offers sports nutrition protein bars, a women’s face and body range as well as bath and hair lotions and potions for the little ones. Not only has Milk & Co.’s product line expanded, the Australian-made

FAMILY MAN: Michael Klim is excited about the Mooloolaba Beach Festival. brand is now available in 12 countries, plus it is the sponsor of the World Swim Series. Klim said it was a no-brainer for him personally and for his company Milk & Co. to join forces with the World Swim Series to help promote his beloved swimming with families across the nation. “It is very family orientated, has a great festival atmosphere and promotes a very healthy, active, clean and green lifestyle,” he said. “That’s everything I stand for and Milk & Co. as a brand. “And it is swimming, my favourite pastime. But the great thing is that it is removed from the black line, it’s in the ocean, in obviously a stunning location and it encourages everyone from the weekend warriors, the junior giants, the kids, the grassroots of the sport, and the people that really want to challenge themselves and take themselves out of their

comfort zone.” After being involved with the World Swim Series for the past four years, Klim still remembers his first event, the 2015 Mooloolaba Mile. “There was this amazing storm rolling into Mooloolaba Beach and we had hundreds of swimmers on the beach,” he said. “The imagery itself was amazing but to also see, one, such a great turnout and two, everyone so happy just to be there despite the conditions not being ideal, that moment stayed with me. For me, it symbolised the love that people have for the sport of swimming.” Klim said swimming remained his favourite pastime, however his focus had changed. “I use it for different purposes now I’m not training to be in my peak,” he said. “I enjoy the movements through the water, for the body and mind. “Getting in the salt water as well

is another bonus, it’s healing. “It takes you into a completely different medium so your senses are out of whack. It’s so meditating.” Health and wellbeing has always been a priority of Klim’s, and now he’s doing his best to promote and encourage others to do the same and reap the benefits. “Investing time in myself makes me a more productive business owner, a more present and more attentive dad,” he said. “I think people understand that back in the day if you were spending time on yourself, people thought it was selfish. But now investing in your own self, you’re doing it for the people around you.” Klim sees his responsibility now as an ex-Olympic swimmer to be a positive ambassador for the sport, for the kids who want to get into it CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

competitively or just those who want to make a healthier life change. It comes as no surprise Michael’s three kids all swim. Klim believes it is a skill all kids must learn, no questions about it. Not for the competitive side, but from a water safety point of view. While swimming is in the family’s blood, Klim’s eldest daughter is a keen horse rider, his son is a talented tennis player and his youngest daughter loves gymnastics. “I promote and encourage my kids to get into a competitive environment, not because I want them to win necessarily, but I think in life most lessons are learnt through adversity, not necessary all the great high-five moments,” he said. “Sport is a great way to teach people discipline and perseverance.” While swimming always was and always will be Klim’s favourite sport, he’s also a keen surfer and likes to do as much yoga as possible… just not stand-up paddling. “I’m not too bad at yoga, I’ve got a reasonably good base for head stands with my bald head,” he said. “I’ll definitely be putting my hand up for the beach yoga for the

OLYMPIC ADVICE Michael Klim’s top race-day tips: What’s the best breakfast to have the morning of race day? Stay away from hearty fry-ups. It’s important to eat a light, well-balanced meal before you go in the water as you’ll be horizontal so you want something that’s easily digestible. For me, the morning before a race I would just generally have cereal with bananas or toast. It’s important to choose something that you’re used to digesting. What snacks are best to pack on the day? It comes down to personal preference and you want something that your own body will digest easily. My favourites include bananas, Natural Confectionery lollies and high-kilojoule foods that your body will absorb and use for energy such as muffins. Mooloolaba Beach Festival. “But I love surfing, in fact it would have to be my second favourite pastime, behind swimming of course.” While Klim is on the Coast for February 17–18 for the Mooloolaba Beach Festival, he aims to extend his stay to a week so he can tick off his must-do Sunshine Coast activities. Number one is to dine along the Mooloolaba Esplanade. Second is to go for a surf at Maroochydore, and last but not least, pop into the old stomping ground, the Cotton Tree Pool. “I’ve spent so many times at the Cotton Tree Pool training back in 1997 and 1998, but I drove past the

Page 4. Sunshine Coast Multisport Mecca

Do you have a little pre-race ritual? Preparation is key. I am pedantic about my gear. I double, triple check my goggle straps, make sure all my swimming suits are labelled… It’s a little OCD-like. I don’t think people need to take it to that extent but I recommend checking gear. Make sure you have your goggles and you’ve worn them before. I discourage people from trialling new goggles or swim suits on the day of the event – it’s not the right time to experiment. Test your gear and make sure you’ve got everything from towels, suits, water, snacks, etc. other day and I hardly recognised it with all the developments going on,” he said. There is no denying the Coast has changed, but a few things remain the same: the beach culture and the healthy lifestyle.

Make the most of the lifestyle we have on offer and challenge yourself to an ocean swim, stand-up paddle or downward dog at the Mooloolaba Beach Festival. As Klim says, “you’ll never regret a swim.”

Mooloolaba Beach Festival

Action-packed new program GROWING interest in ocean water swimming inspired this weekend’s Mooloolaba Beach Festival. Previously known as the Mooloolaba Mile, World Series Swims introduced a two-day program that now features paddling races, yoga, exhibitions, an outdoor cinema, as well as additional ocean swims. New events on Saturday will see swimmers undertake a 2.5km Alexandra Headland to Mooloolaba ocean swim. There will also be a 5km race from Mooloolaba to Alex and return for long-course swimmers. Paddle boarders and stand-up riders will also be given a chance to race the same 5km course. On Sunday there will be junior 300m and 800m swims, along with the traditional half mile and Mooloolaba Mile (1.6km) events. “It was always our intention to expand and have ocean swims over two days,” World Series Swims director John Guise said. “The mile field has been growing, and there is plenty of demand for ocean swims. “We wanted to introduce a new format on the Sunshine Coast. “Rather than just a straight ocean swim event, we wanted some more leisure activities, paddle boarding and lifestyle options that are more family friendly.” Both days will be action-packed, with the Saturday to have activities from sunrise to sunset. Each race has two wave start groups, open or elites and then a mates group. There will also be male and female waves for the

Supporting Dolly’s campaign TEWANTIN triathlete Chloe McLennan is wearing her heart on her sleeve...or in this case blue on her helmet and hubs. The 15-year-old has asked fellow competitors to wear something blue in this week’s Queensland School Sport Triathlon and Aquathlon Championships in Hervey Bay. With the support of Triathlon Queensland and Queensland School Sport, athletes are being asked to wear something blue to raise awareness for the #doitfordolly anti-bullying campaign in support of Dolly’s Dream Foundation. The Sunshine Coast teen wants to build a community of support, taking a stand against bullying. “Dolly was only 14 – that’s the same age bracket as the kids that will be racing in Hervey Bay this week,” McLennan said. Using sport as a platform, McLennan has been an active advocate, involved in fundraising campaigns including Daffodil Day and flood appeals. She believes raising awareness on social issues is “just part of who I am”. Active on social media, she uses the medium to create positive messages, driven by herself, with support from her parents. Inspired by the work of the Foundation, McLennan is calling for participants, parents and

PHOTOS: CONTRIBUTED supporters to wear something blue to remember Dolly during the two days of racing. McLennan will have blue wheel hubs and a blue ribbon on her helmet. She hopes this will help kids reach out for support, and help parents start a conversation with their kids. “Bullying is going on – check in on your child, they may be too embarrassed to say anything. Know the resources and tools

available for both parents and kids,” McLennan said. The Queensland School Sport Triathlon and Aquathlon Championships will be held at the Hervey Bay Sailing Club from Friday to Saturday this week. Athletes are representing their school sport regions, vying for a position on the Queensland Schools Triathlon team to race at the Australian Schools Triathlon Festival in Penrith, NSW in April 2018.

Solid season opener for young Aussie COMMONWEALTH Games-bound Queenslander Luke Willian says he’s glad to have a race under his belt this season, after claiming second place at the Caloundra Triathlon on Sunday. The 21-year-old made a relatively quiet return to racing in the Queensland Triathlon Series event, in what is shaping up to be a bumper year. He clocked 54min 30sec, to finish 24sec behind Max Studer in the sprint format (750m swim, 20km ride, 5km run), which is the same distance that will be contested at the Gold Coast in April. Max, and his brother Felix are part of team Switzerland, currently staying at Marcoola as they prepare for the Commonwealth Games. But he wasn’t too worried about the result at this point in the season and the race came after a day of heavy training. “I didn’t have huge expectations

because I haven’t done the speed work yet and I had a big day on Saturday so I struggled a bit ... it’s good to get the cobwebs out and get the feel of racing and to get a bit hungry now for the next couple of races before the Commonwealth Games,” he said. Before the Games, he will attempt to defend his title in the Mooloolaba Triathlon World Cup race, next month. Willian enjoyed a solid season in 2017, claiming third place in the under-23 world championships in Rotterdam. Meanwhile, Nina Derron who is also part of the Swiss team, was the first female finisher, in 1hr 49sec, 1min ahead of Brittany Dutton. Among the local competitors, teenager Jake Hynes was in good form crossing the line in 57:15 to finish second in the 16-19 age group. Reigning off-road triathlon

Run by events specialists Jason and Lisa Crowther (pictured right), Atlas Multisports aims to double entries over the next two years from its current figure of 5000 runners from more than 35 countries. The event was inspired by marathoner Robert de Castello’s gold medal win at the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane. “The Brisbane Marathon Festival is known for its stunning course and enjoyable atmosphere,” Jason said.

“As Australia’s third major capital city running event, we are looking forward to building on its reputation for quality and we’ll continue to deliver a must-do event that has broad appeal.” Courses will remain unchanged, with runners in the blue ribbon marathon event to cross some of the city’s landmark bridges including the Story Bridge while taking in major Brisbane attractions like the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, South Bank and the Botanic Gardens. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, August 5, with five distances available including the 1km mini marathon, 5km, 10km, 21.1km half marathon and 42.2km marathon.

Steve Manning, who founded the Brisbane Marathon in 1992, will remain actively involved in the event. Two weeks after the Brisbane Marathon Festival, Atlas Multisports will stage the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Running Festival at Alexandra Headland. Both events are AIMS certified, which enables runners to achieve qualification for international races including the Boston Marathon. The Sunshine Coast event has become a marquee event on the region’s fitness calendar, raising more than $1.3 million for major beneficiaries Ronald McDonald House Charities and Westpac Foundation as well as many other local community groups.
