C’Wealth Day 3: Seebohm, Campbell Sisters Spearhead Pan Pac Qualifers


As exciting as the 2018 Commonwealth Games are in their own right, the competition serves as a selection meet for Swimming Australia’s Pan Pacific Championships squad. Per the qualification criteria,the first, second and third placed eligible athletes in the final of an individual Olympic event at the Commonwealth Games will be selected to the Pan Pacific team, subject to the time that they swim in the final equalling or beating the QTs listed in the specific appendix. Athletes meeting this criteria will be considered a ‘Priority 1 athlete.’

You can view the table of qualification times below. The 2018 Pan Pacific Championships are slated for August 23rd – August 28th in Tokyo, Japan.

As such, throughout the Commonwealth Games we’ll be keeping a Pan Pacific Championships Australian team tracker, just to keep a running list of those highest placed Aussies having clocked QTs this week. Here’s how the squad shapes up thus far, knowing swimmers may opt out of swimming the event and/or additional swimmers may be added at coaches’ discretion.
