Taking time off after the Rio Olympic Games appears to be just what the doctor ordered for Australian speedster Cate Campbell, as the freestyle dynamo scorched a new Australian National Record, Commonwealth Record and All Comers Record in the 50m freestyle on the final night of this year’s Australian Championships.
Already earning a morning mark of 24.19, C1 turned on another cylindar for the final race, overtaking her own previous personal best and past Aussie NR of 23.84 from 2016.
Of her remarkable performance tonight, Campbell said, “It is a personal best. They don’t come around often at the ripe old age of 25 so I will take them when I can.”
Speaking to her 2017 break, C1 stated, “To be honest the first couple of weeks [back in pool] I was a bit worried but after a while your body remembers.
“It’s a big weight off my shoulders knowing I can come out and improve under pressure. I feel I am in a much better place to cope with that.”
