The men’s 200m breast here in South Australia brought performances that merely needed to be done to make the final. SOSC’s Matthew Wilson, the man who held the 200m breast World Record for a matter of hours in Gwangju, topped the field in 2:10.26 while Chandler’s Zac Stubblety-Cook produced 2:10.64 to foreshadow a race between these two gentlemen tonight.
Daniel Cave is lurking as the 3rd seed in 2:13.36 but it appears to be a two-man battle between the aforementioned men to race to the 2:08.28 Swimming Australia-mandated qualification time.

17-year-old Elizabeth Dekkers has staked her claim on this women’s 200m fly event, reaping the top seed in a solid 2:08.49. Grabbing the only sub-2:10 time of the field, Dekkers of Newmarket Racers opened in 1:01.07 and closed in 1:07.42 to post the 5th fastest time of her career. Dekkers owns a lifetime best of 2:07.25 from just this past April’s Aussie Age Championships.
Rio Olympic finalist Brianna Throssell missed out on the top 6 slots of the women’s 200m free here in South Australia after having been a part of the 800m free relay World Record in Gwangju. The West Aussie is seeking some kind of redemption in this 2fly event, owning the 3rd seeded effort of 2:10.25, just .04 outside of Brittanny Castelluzzo‘s 2:10.21

Jasmine Greenwood swam the top MC women’s 100 freestyle prelim with her 1:02.36 which was good enough for 854 points. Greenwood will be attempting to qualify for her first-ever Olympic Games during the finals session, having represented Australia at the 2019 World Paralympic Swimming Championships. There, she picked up a bronze medal in the 100m Butterfly S10 category.

Defending Olympic champion Kyle Chalmers led the pack in the men’s 100 freestyle prelims with a 48.58. That swim was actually slower than Chalmers’ current season-best in the event of 48.04 which he hit in April at the Australian National Championships.
Chalmers will need to be a bit quicker in order to qualify for the Olympics as the nation’s qualifying standard in the event currently sits at a 48.33.
