We’ve been working our way through the world rankings impact the recently-concluded Australian World Swimming Trials have had, including isolating the elite men and elite women in particular. Now let’s take a look at any movers and shakers in the 18&U category for Australia as a result of performances rendered at the biggest domestic meet of the year.

Aussie age groupers Thomas Neill, Mitchell Tinsley, Thomas Hauck, Joshua Edwards-Smith, Alexander Grant and Brendon Smith all did major damage to the 18&U boards with their stellar outings in Brisbane.

For Neill, perhaps the most eye-catching swim from the Rackley 17-year-old came in his 400m free, where he dipped under the 3:50 barrier for the first time of his young career. The emerging freestyler was 3:55.52 in March, which he dropped down to 3:50.99 to take gold at the Australian Age Championships just a month later. His time of 3:49.98 from the men’s open final in Brisbane made him the 6th fastest 17-year-old Aussie ever in the 400m free.

Hauck managed to dip under the 2:00 threshold for the first time of his career in the men’s 200m back, touching in a remarkable 4th place at just 16 years of age. Prior to Brisbane, his fastest was the 2:00.00 notched at Aussie Age Championships.

As for Tinsley, the 18-year-old Chandler man made waves in the 800m and 1500m freestyle, following in the footsteps of Jack McLoughlin who rattled the senior world rankings in both of those events, along with the 400m free.

Hi Loretta, for some reason the rankings do not include times from the Australian Age championships in April? Eg, Edwards-Smith went 1.57.82 in 200 back in April ( crazy fast). Hauck went 4.20.58 in 400 IM and Se-Bom Lee went 4.19.10 in 400 IM and 1.59.53 200 back. Think Hartwell also did 1.59

Thanks for the heads up. The rankings are based on the FINA database, which indeed has a lag time…longer than reasonable actually.

Thought so . Must be busy with other things 😊

FYI Edwards Smith has done a 1.57 for 200 back. He did it at Aust Open champs I think. I doubt he tapered for trials as he was named for junior worlds team then. Hauk is exciting. Also very handy 200 Fr.

And I just realised Neill did a 7.59 800 free and 15.15. 1500 free at age nationals . Could be interesting at World Juniors
