Swimming NSW Statement:

On Thursday 11th January, highly regarded NSW Coach Hamid Mobarrez (from the KRB Aquatics Swimming Club) and his family were involved in a car accident near Mollymook where Hamid was conducting a camp for his swimmers.

Tragically, Hamid’s wife Tamara passed away at the scene of the accident. Both Hamid and his son Eli were air lifted to separate hospitals where they have undergone surgery and their condition is still being assessed.

Swimming NSW is devastated by this news and at this extremely difficult time our thoughts are with their families and friends.

We thank the swimming community for the many enquiries and offers for support that we have already received and are sure will be needed in the very near future. Over the next few days we will respect the privacy of the Mobarrez family and therefore further announcements regarding support and assistance will be forthcoming.

Our love and deepest sympathy are with Hamid and Eli at this time and we offer our sincere condolences with the loss of their beautiful wife and mother.

Update: Swimming NSW is overwhelmed with the support from the Swimming community for the Mobarrez family. Our sincerest thanks go out to everyone that has sent messages of support and made a donation to the Go Fund me page, we are sure Hamid and his family will be forever grateful.

There is good news to report with Eli now out of Intensive Care and recovering well. Hamid is currently still in Intensive Care but his doctors hope to move him out of Intensive Care in the next few days.

We will provide further updates when we can.
