The 2019 Queensland Championships are set to kick-off this weekend, with the week-long competition taking place at Brisbane Aquatic Center.
At the 2018 edition of the competition, we saw the likes of now-retired former world champion Ning Zetao of China compete and this time around we’ll see more Asian swimmers in action in the form of Japan and Korea.
Reona Aoki, Yasuhiro Koseki and Yui Ohashi are just a few of the Japanese names entering the mix for this year, while New Zealand is also bringing a strong contingent including World Championships bronze medalist Lewis Clareburt.
From the domestic scene, David McKeon is set to make a return to racing after having had shoulder surgery and subsequent rehab, while on-fire teen Lani Pallister is ready to make some waves with possible state titles here.
