Aussie swimwear label Funkita has launched a new collection in the lead up to
summer. Cult Cameo is an encore to their Culture Clash collection to bring you
another shot of color and craziness. Funkita traveled to the Sunshine Coast,
Queensland to capture their gorgeous athletes Carla Buchanan, Madi Thompson and
Antonia Hurd swimming and swanning poolside in the new prints and styles. Check out
the images and a quick update on the girls below:

In the last two years, 21-year-old Carla Buchanan was struck down twice by two
different illnesses but still managed to be selected to swim for Australia at the
2016 World Short Course Championships in Windsor, Canada. Carla is now back to full
health and has her focus fixed on Tokyo 2020 where she hopes to represent
Australia. The first step in her journey is qualifying for the 2017 World
Championships. With the Australian Trials kicking off in twelve days, she is ready
to give it her all.

In her final year of high school, 17-year-old Madi Thompson is juggling the
pressures of finishing school, completing nine pool training sessions each week and
the responsibilities of school captain. She travels over an hour from her home on
Bribie Island to get to training and a further hour to school before repeating the
journey in the afternoon. She raced her first Australian Open Short Course
Championships in 2016 and her goal to swim at Tokyo 2020 will need all her
determination and commitment to achieve.

2016 was a big year for 15-year-old AntKonia Hurd with a bronze in the 200m
backstroke at the Australian Age Championships, as well as competing at the
Australian School Sports Championships where she won four medals in the 400m
individual medley, 200m freestyle, 100m and 200m backstroke. Antonia is busy
preparing for her fourth Australian Age Championships in just a few weeks and
trains at Bond University Swimming Club alongside Olympians Cam McEvoy and Thomas
