With just 6% of the Australian roster for this summer’s Pan Pacific Championships stemming from New South Wales (NSW), Swimming Australia is once again facing the question of how to keep emerging talent from leaving the state.
Two-time world champion and 2012 Olympic silver medalist James Magnussen isn’t sure if his career in the pool is over or not as he looks to his future.
David McKeon will not be competing at his nation’s Pan Pac Trials due to a nagging shoulder injury.
Cameron McEvoy has pulled out of this weekend’s Australian Pan Pac Trials, meaning he will very likely not be competing at this year’s Pan Pacific Championships.
Check out who will be vying for a last-chance spot on the Australian roster for this summer’s Pan Pacific Championships.
Olympic and Commonwealth champion Kyle Chalmers of Australia embodies the thought, “it’s about focusing on the process and then I know I’ll achieve the outcome I want,” both in and out of the pool.
What’s next for two-time world champion James Magnussen?
Kyle Chalmers montrait une fois de plus que l’Australie tenait en lui un nageur doté d’un esprit combattant. Le champion olympique du 100 mètres s’est imposé sur la distance double, avec une longueur de bras d’avance sur Mackenzie Horton.
Records are poised to fall as the 2nd finals session of the 2018 Commonwealth Games will feature finals in the men’s 50 fly, women’s 50 breast, men’s 200 free, men’s and women’s S9 100 back, men’s 400 IM, men’s 100 back, women’s 100 fly, and men’s 4 x 100 free relay, as well as seminfinals of the women’s 50 free, men’s 100 breast, and women’s 100 back.
Kyle Chalmers was king was again, this time taking the 200m free title to give host nation Australia another gold.
It’s all Australia this year.
Duncan Scott is a major threat to win gold in both the 100 and 200 freestyle at the Commonwealth Games.
Cate Campbell does it again, cracking off a new Australian NR in the 50m freestyle in 23.79, while Mitch Larkin proved he is IM material.
Cameron McEvoy just scorched the world’s #2 50m freestyle time in the world during the morning heats on the last day of the Australian Trials.
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.
