MOUNTIES champ Alex Quach is on track to represent Australia, says coach Rob Chaffe.

Quach, 13, has been on a run lately.

At a recent Mounties swim meet he broke two NSW records, in the 100-metres backstroke and 100-metres individual medley.

It came hot off the heels of his four gold medals at the NSW Metropolitan Championships.

At the same meet he also broke three records in the 200-metres individual medley, butterfly and breaststroke.

Since starting at Mounties three years ago the St Johns Park resident has made breaking records a very healthy habit.

Earlier this year Quach broke one of Ian Thorpe's longstanding schoolboy records in the 50-metres freestyle.

"I don't want to put to much pressure on him, but he is on pace to represent Australia when he gets older," said Chaffe, the Mounties swim club head coach.

"He is very dedicated; he trains five days a week at Prairiewood Leisure Centre and is constantly improving."

Quach is preparing for the NSW State Championships at the end of August.

Six Mounties swim club members will join him.
