The eyes of the Western Australian swimming community have been fixed on the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest this week with Brianna Throssell (UWA-West Coast SC), Holly Barratt (Rockingham SC) and Zac Incerti (UWA-West Coast SC) all pulling on the “green and gold” to represent their nation on the world stage.

Back in Perth, this weekend at HBF Stadium will see the next generation of Western Australian swimmers striving to excel on the International stage in the lead up to the 2017 State Open and Age Short Course Championships in September.

The Women’s 100m Freestyle is shaping as “the one to watch” as Rio Olympic silver medallist Tamsin Cook (UWA-West Coast SC) returning to competition, up against Jemima Horwood (UWA-West Coast SC) and Jasmine Hopkins (Busselton SC) who are both in the latter stages of preparation for the upcoming FINA Junior World Championships in Indianapolis.

The Mens 200m Backstroke promises to be a tight battle with top seeded Tristan De Villiers (Arena SC) and Ben Vafeas (Breakers SC) looking to hold off the ever-improving Joshua Edwards-Smith (UWA-West Coast SC) who is competing on the back of a gold medal performance at the 2017 Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Championships in April.

Nicholas Brown (Western Sprint SC) and Alex Milligan (UWA-West Coast SC) will both be looking to race well in their key events ahead of their appearances at the 2017 World University Games taking place in Tapei in August.

The Meet will start each morning with a full programme of Junior racing with swimmers aged 12 years and under competing to gain qualifying times for the 2017 State Junior Short Course Championships in September.

The meet will also see the new electronic marshalling system, developed by My Swim Results trialled at a Swimming WA meet for the first time. Swimming WA will review the system following the meet with the view to “roll out” the electronic system at all meets in future.

For further information about this weekends meet or to learn more about the electronic marshalling system, please contact the Competition Coordinator Blake Lornie-Duguid on blake.lornieduguid@wa.swimming.org.au or in the office on (08) 9328 4599.
