With the 2016 Australian Short Course Championships having concluded tonight in Brisbane, the nation’s roster for the upcoming SC World Championships in Windsor is set. Carrying a total of 20 green and gold swimmers to Windsor, Australia’s line-up includes 6 Rio Olympians, along with 12 new faces to bring both veteran and fresh talent to the international stage.
Mitch Larkin, Emily Seebohm, David Morgan, Brittany Elmslie, Jessica Ashwood and Daniel Smith represent the 6 athletes who participated in the 2016 Olympic Games who will be trying for world titles in early December. They’ll be joined by veteran Aussie athletes Bobby Hurley and Tommaso D’Orsogna, the former of which was a member of Australia’s bronze medal-winning 4x100m medley relay in London 2012.
World Junior Champion and current world junior record holder, Minna Atherton, is making her SC World Championships debut at just 16 years of age, while 19-year-old Clyde Lewis also made the cut.
Famous faces not making themselves available for Windsor and, therefore, opting out of the meet include Kyle Chalmers, Cameron McEvoy, Madison Wilson and Madeline Groves.
