The 2021 Queensland Short Course Championships wrapped up today from Brisbane Aquatic Centre.
Putting an exclamation point on the men’s 200m breaststroke was 17-year-old Yannick Zwolsman of Southport. The teen ripped a big-time outing of 2:07.97 to delve under the 2:10 threshold for the first time in his young career.
Entering this meet, Zwolsman held a personal best of 2:11.97 from just this past July. However, splitting 1:01.98/1:05.99, Zwolsman entered entirely new territory today, beating the field by over 5 seconds en route to nearly knocking off Olympic champion Zac Stubblety-Cook’s Queensland record. Stubblety-Cook owns the state record in 2:07.86, so Zwolsman was just .11 off of that marker.
Zwolsman’s swim now ranks him as the 3rd fastest Aussie 17-year-old ever in the event, sitting behind Matt Wilson’s 2:05.08 and Stubblety-Cook’s 2:07.86.
Additional wins came in the form of Thomas Nowakowski snagging the 50m free victory over 16-year-old Flynn Southam of Bond. Nowakowski hit the wall in 22.20 to just hold off Southam’s 22.29.
The women’s 50m free saw Mia O’Leary get it done for golden 24.77 as the only swimmer under 25 seconds in the open catory.
