St Hilda’s Madeleine McTernan (S14) continues to dominate the 2019 Hancock Prospecting Australian Age Swimming Championships, claiming two more gold medals on Sunday afternoon – taking her tally to four in total.

After taking home the top honor in the Girls’ 17-18-year 100m Freestyle Multi-Class this morning, the rising star backed it up in the afternoon to also earn the national age title in the Girls’ 17-18-year 50m Butterfly and, just 45-minutes later, the Girls’ 17-18-year 50m Backstroke.

A member of this year’s World Para Championship team which will compete in London in September, the 18-year-old clocked 32.98 in the 50m butterfly to beat out Southport Olympic’s Kiandra Cumberland (S14) (33.81) and Victoria Jessamine (S14) from Revesby Workers (34.02).

In her second event of the night, she hopped back in the pool and also came out on top against Jessamine who took the silver spoils and lane three’s Tahlia Blanshard (S9) from Woy Woy.

Col Pearse (S10) from Melbourne H20 is also having a tremendous meet after recording his fourth gold medal of the tournament. Claiming titles across four strokes – butterfly, freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke – the emerging athlete is having a breakout meet. In his final event of the night – the Boys’ 15-16-year 100m Butterfly Multi-Class, Pearse beat out Jet Jankiewicz (S10) from The Hobart Aquatic and Noah Robinson (S9) from TSS Aquatics.

Alexander Tuckfield (S9) from SLC Aquadot captured his third medal of the competition on Sunday afternoon after prevailing in the Boys’ 11-14-year 100m Backstroke Multi-Class. His Central Cairns counterpart Joel Mundie (S7) powered home to score silver while Revesby Workers’ athlete Lachlan Hanratty (S14) claimed the bronze – to nab his second medal of the day.

Wollongong’s Jarrod Dyer (S14) took home the gold medal in the 17-18-year 50m Butterfly Multi-Class event. Notching up his second title, Dyer finished ahead of SOPAC’s Oscar Stubbs (S13) and Uni of Queensland’s Bailey Stewart (S14).

With a time of 1:15.71 equaling a point score of 1198, UWA West Coast athlete Ella Hodgson (S16) has beaten her opponents to nab the national age title in the Girls’ 11-14 100m Backstroke Multi-Class. The young talent showed her class across the course of the race to achieve gold in front of local Norwood swimmer Isabella Vincent (S7), who pinched second place on the podium with a time of 1:35.64 and point score of 588. Jasmin Fullgrabe (S9) from Clovercrest secured bronze with a time of 1:25.84 and point score of 490.
