The 2020 Queensland Championships are set to kick-off this weekend, with big-time Aussie talent ready to throw down at the Brisbane Aquatic Center. Although this is a non-selection meet, the caliber of talent renders virtually every swim a must-watch, as the Aussies are known to put up some brilliant performances on their home turf.

The meet follows the Australian Virtual Championships which concluded last month. We saw Kaylee McKeown fire off a new World Record in the women’s 200m back of 1:58.94 (SCM). She’s entered in this event, along with most every would-be Olympian, save the Campbell sisters and Kyle Chalmers, who is recovering from surgery.

Of note, day 1, December 12th is comprised of relays only, while days 5-8 are non-open events. Additionally, the 50’s events are swum as timed finals here at these Championships.

Below are some key entrants on which to keep your eye this weekend.

She’s not swimming anything on Sunday and Saturday being relays is easily skipped.

I little off-topic but Lani Pallister’s mum has taken a coaching position at Griffith University where Lani is already training with Bohl.

Chris Wright is moving to the Sunshine Coast so maybe Janelle is taking his position.

The 50 events now have heats and finals. This is different to other years. In fact, they didn’t used to have 50 of the form strokes, only free.
