This year’s edition of the Sydney Open is almost upon us with Australia’s arsenal of talent descending upon Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre on Thursday, May 13th.
Incorporating the 2021 Uni Sport Nationals, this Sydney Open will see its timing mimic that of this summer’s Olympic Games, with the prelims sessions taking place at night and finals getting underway the following morning.
22-year-old Chalmers from Marion is set to take on the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle events, as well as the 100m fly, while the Campbell sisters will line up in their 50m and 100m freestyle events. As for mid-distance ace Titmus, the St. Peters Western star is expected to contest the 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle to give us a taste of where she’s at with Tokyo on the horizon.
Mainstay racers Emma McKeon and Emily Seebohm will be joined by relatively-new comeback swimmer Tamsin Cook and Maddie Groves, the latter of which had undergone surgery last year to address adenomyosis.
