The 2019 Swimming Australia World Trials kick-off this weekend,  not to be mistaken for the Australian National Championships, which already took place this past April.

The 6-day Trials meet taking place June 9th-14th at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre is the sole competition qualifying Australian swimmers for this summer’s World Championships in Gwangju, Korea. Per the official selection policy, the 1st and 2nd placed athletes in each Olympic event will be eligible for selection, provided they meet or exceed the minimum time standards included in the grid at the bottom of this post.

The team size is capped at 52 athletes – 26 males and 26 females, but the reality is that 40 or so athletes will most likely make up the squad.

Per Aussie Head Coach Jacco Verhaeharen, the philosophy for the nation’s QTs means that a swimmer’s time should be able to qualify him/her for a final at a World Championshps. Therefore, the QTs are set to the top 8 of the previous World Championships.

We already published several previews with highlighted schedules of key swimmers, but here are additional event lineups for Aussies to watch as the meet unfolds.

Australian media is reporting that his camp says his entries will be changed, however, no new psych sheet has been released. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.

What I’d like to know is how the head coaches at Swimming Australia didn’t notice his absence from his primary events given his importance to the team. Seems like a failure at multiple levels.

It does help to enter & turnup at meets to get the little things correct like right event . Even the club secretary may have forgotten as that was he only event he swam since April 18 ?

I seriously doubt he was forgotten at his club or by head coaches at Swimming Australia if he hasn’t been forgotten by commenters at Swimswam. People noticed his absence here immediately.

Some have been mindful of his heart health & that he may only be doing aerobic work this year . That would be a logical conclusion .to non appearance .

He’s on the start lists for 100 and 200 breast but mustn’t have been deemed important enough to note in the article.

Im really glad they ditched the semi finals format.. it really didn’t work for Australian circumstances in terms of depth. Hard racing between prelims and finals is what they needed for international standards (ie swim fast from the get-go to make the finals)

Exactly, for a country like ours, the semis gave swimmers the ability to take it easy in the prelims.

Now to just get rid of them at World/Olympic level !! Without them clogging up the program, you would conceivably have the space to then bring in the form-stroke 50s to Olympics. Intl swimming coped quite well without them during the 80’s & much of the 90s. It would certainly bring it home very explicitly to “bring your A game in the heats” or you’re watching the finals from the sidelines.

“The philosophy for the nation’s QTs means that a swimmer’s time should be able to qualify him/her for a final at a World Championshps. Therefore, the QTs are set to the top 8 of the previous World Championships”. Meaning the top 8 out of semifinals, I assume? Otherwise, it’s wrong.
