With the 2019 Australian National Championships serving as qualification for the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships, there were plenty of multi-class swimmers in action on night 2 at the SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre.
Ellie Cole broke through with the win in the women’s S9 100m backstroke multi-class in 1:10.20, becoming the first female para athlete ever to win the same event an incredible 6 times at a national championships.
After already crushing his own World Record en route to silver in the men’s 400m free multi-class race on night 1, S14 swimmer Liam Schluter collected more hardware with 50m fly gold in 27.05.
All para races were swum as multi-class races, meaning athletes from all classifications competed in the same event, with the Para-swimmer recording a time closest to their class world record crowned the winner.
