Swimming WA Stars Make a Short Course Splash!

The Short Course season is in full swing with the Swimming WA Short Course Qualifying Meet #1 to be held at HBF Stadium this weekend.

WA swimmers announced themselves on the national stage with a number of standout performances at the Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Championships and Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Championships in April. This weekend will serve as the first opportunity for our National stars to get back into short course mode and put their post-nationals training on show. 

2016 Olympian Blair Evans will be amongst the athletes competing this weekend. Evans, who recently defended her National title in the 400 Individual Medley will race in the 200m Butterfly, Breaststroke, Freestyle and Individual Medley and 400m Individual Medley as a stepping stone for her preparations for the 2018 Commonwealth Games trials. Fellow Olympian, Tamsin Cook is also entered to compete at this weekend’s meet, in what will be her first meet since taking a break from competition following Rio. 

Cook will race against her teammate and rising super star Jemima Horwood in the Women’s 100m Freestyle in what looks to be one of the highlights of the competition. After recently being named on the 2017 Australian Junior World Championships team, Horwood will use the racing practice in preparation for Junior World Championships, in Indianapolis later this year. 

Also the action will be the likes of Nicholas Brown, Alex Milligan, George Harley and age groups stars such as Kate Harrison, Damien Badenhorst, TJ Chong Sue, Joshua Edwards-Smith, plus many more. 

Racing will begin at 9am on Saturday 17 June, live results will be available throughout the weekend on the meet mobile app.
