SUCCESSFUL COMEBACK: Ian Carrick made a successful comeback into the pool last weekend, after four years out of the water.

IAN Carrick is making a comeback in more ways than one.

After four years out of the pool due to depression, Ian cleaned up at the Masters Swimming Queensland held in Hervey Bay last weekend.

Ian, known as Dawn to his friends, placed first in 400, 200 and 100 metre breaststroke and received fourth in the 50 metre swim.

But he didn't stop there. Ian shaved five seconds off his 200m personal best and four seconds off his 100m.

"I'm back on deck now," Ian said.

He is already looking at the possibility of competing in the FINA World Masters in Italy later this year.

Ian said his comeback was thanks to the support he had received from the Biloela Bluefins members and his Masters Swimming Club the Gladstone Gropers.

Ian started training in swimming's off season in the heated pool over in Gladstone.

He believes a similar set-up would be a valuable addition to the Biloela swimming pool.

"All they would need is a shed over the pool and then plastic sheets to come around the pool," Ian said.

"It's a great little pool and is something that would be there forever.

"It would mean that people who train and elderly people who prefer to exercise in the water could do it all year round."
