That is for the calendar year 2015 however these lists are for the 2015-16 LCM season. 2015 Worlds were classified as the end of the 2014-15 season and the 2015-16 commenced with the start of the 2015 FINA World Cup

Santo Condorelli was 48.0 at US Nationals but is not listed in the world rankings.

It is great to see Packard going under the 1:00.00, proving that Worlds wasn’t just a one off. Unfortunately there’s no other breaststrokers close to him in the 100m.

McEvoy, Larkin, campbell,Seebohm, Wilson and Chalmers all posted strong times for the end of the year. McEvoy and Larkin in particular have looked great.

I may be wrong, but I think that was the first time Minna Atherton has broken the minute? She was right up there with Wilson & Seebohm.

Atherton swam 4 sub minutes at World Juniors. 59.83 Heats, 59.86 Semis, 59.58 Final & 59.61 leading off the medley relay.

Re men’s 100BRS, there was certainly zero competition for Packard at this meet. Sprenger remains a “maybe” with regards to returning to anywhere near his previous standard. Sucipto is currently swimming 1.00s but whether he can get below the minute by Trials is open to question.

Day 3 Finals
W200FLY: Groves 2.06.43, no one else within 4 seconds.
M200FLY: Morgan 1.57.40, Wright 1.57.55
W200IM: Fullerton 2.12.34, Barratt 2.13.52, McKeown 2.14.05
M200IM: Lewis 2.02.02, Gilliland 2.02.57
W200BK: Seebohm 2.07.43, Wilson 2.07.84, Atherton 2.11.04
M200BK: Larkin 1.53, no one else within 9 sec.

Whilst a pleasing time by Groves; she does come with a warning “domestic performance only”. Whilst not yet “tourist class”, her 2014/2015 international outings have been nowhere near her domestic times. Men’s 200FLY times 2 seconds off AUS QT.

Fullerton’s time is within a second of the AUS QT in an event that has looked bare since Coutts. Lewis was a gold medallist in M200IM at World Juniors but… Read more »
