The 4-day Australian Championships, which doubled as the Commonwealth Games Trials, came to a close tonight in Southport, but not before 49 able-bodied and 21 Para Sport athletes were named to the green and gold roster for a home-based Games coming up in April.

For her trio of efforts in Southport this week, Australian 17-year-old Ariarne Titmus now ranks as the #2 swimmers in the world this season across the 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle events.
With her 800m freestyle victory tonight, Titmus became the first swimmer in 14 years and only the 6th Australian ever to sweep the 200m/400m/800m freestyle events.
Mitch Larkin took on the tough 200 back/200 IM double this morning at the Aussie Trials, making it back in both events’ finals.
Aussie powerhouse youngesters Kyle Chalmers and Jack Cartwright share more than just the same 100m freestyle prelim time.
Aussie Kyle Chalmers has voiced concern over being seeing as a ‘one-hit wonder’ after claiming gold in Rio. His 100m freestyle national title tonight, on top of his 200m freestyle title from night 1, leaves no doubt the kid is the real deal.
17-year-old Ariarne Titmus claimed her 2nd Australian national title in as many days, lowering her own 400m freestyle national record in the process.
After a disappointing 8th place finish in last night’s 200m freestyle final, Aussie Cameron McEvoy claimed the top seed in a very stacked 100m freestyle field.
Cate Campbell just became Australia’s fastest 50 flyer ever with her morning performance at the Aussie Trials.
