Ariarne Titmus’s Great Day Out

Superstar of the pool, Ariarne Titmus, was just 17 years old when she claimed three golds and a silver medal at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. The Indooroopilly schoolgirl realised her passion for swimming at age 7, when she joined a club and started racing…she’s never stopped…and some say she’s unstoppable. She believes it all comes down to the fact that she absolutely loves swimming (yep, even the early morning training).

“A lot of people that swim want to stay far away from water when they’re on a break, I just love being around the water, anything like that it’s just a lot of fun”.

A Great Day Out for Ariarne starts with training at her school, St Peters Lutheran College. She then enjoys a session at the gym, followed by her second passion – food. Ariarne’s a self-confessed foodie. She loves Brisbane’s café culture and alfresco dining. Her favourite meal of the day is breakfast, and she’s been testing out the café’s in Brisbane’s western suburbs for the best avocado on toast. So far, Pitch and Fork on Sylvan Rd Toowong is at the top of her list. Their smashed avo on toast is decorated with dukkah, almonds, pomegranate and grilled haloumi (if you think that sounds great, you should check out the rest of the menu!).

But for Ariarne, it’s not just about the food, good company enhances any meal.

“You know, going to a café isn’t just about eating good food, but having a bit of a social life, it’s some place we can go and enjoy some good food and a good chat. I really enjoy that”.
