Ted, a stalwart of Yeronga Park Swimming Pool, has devoted decades to volunteering, notably as a technical official for Swimming Queensland. His invaluable presence ensures the smooth running of competitions and daily operations, making him an important figure in both the pool and Brisbane’s swimming community.
