WOMEN’S 100 Freestyle – FINALS – Reported by Braden Keith
The Campbell sisters once again swept the top two spots in the women’s 100 free, with Cate Campbell swimming to a 52.68 and Bronte Campbell touching 2nd in 53.02.
Again showing little mercy for the sake of this just being a trials meet, Cate broke her own Australian All-Comers Record of 52.83, which is to say her finals mark was the fastest ever done on Australian soil.
Emma McKeon has earned yet another individual swim at the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pac Championships, should she choose to exercise them all, with a 3rd-place finish in 53.57. This is her 3rd individual qualifying mark of the meet, to go with two possible relay swims as well.
Brittany Elmslie and Mel Schlanger tied for 4th in the event in 54.06; per the official meet standards, this could result in a swim-off if there’s not enough spots for them both to go (Schlanger is already qualified for the meet for the 800 free relay, probably).
