Carrara has just hosted the Commonwealth Games athletics trials, and now it’s time for our best swimmers to book their spot in the Australian team ahead of April’s event.
Next week, the biggest names in Australian swimming will light up the night at the Optus Aquatic Centre in Southport as they compete for selection over four days and nights (Feb 28-March 3).
Veteran superfish Cam McEvoy, James Roberts, Cate and Bronte Campbell, as well as Emily Seebohm, Mack Horton and James Magnussen will all dive in alongside a bunch of young hopefuls, hoping qualify for Australia’s first Commonwealth Games in 12 years.
