Swimming Connects the Fab Five

Boroondara Sports Complex (BSC) has been helping keep members John, Angelo, Lou, Graham and James fit and healthy since the late 1990’s.

The Fab Five, as they are affectionately known, continue to hit the BSC pool four times a week. They keep each other motivated to get out of bed and take the dive into the pool, even on those cold, wet and wintery mornings.

“Getting to know these lads from BSC is great for me to continue to stay active and swim. It’s great fun catching up with the boys each week and we really keep each other motivated,” says John. 

When it comes to what the Fab Five enjoy most about swimming together, John says, “We really benefit from the routine and social aspect as well as the beautiful facilities at BSC.”

The Fab Five have become well known to BSC staff, who enjoy the banter and comradery the group provide in those early morning hours on pool deck.

Over the years the Fab Five’s friendship has grown outside the lanes at BSC with the group regularly catching up over a coffee or dinner with their partners. Proving that friends who exercise together; stay together.
