The story yesterday was accordingly to Gold Medal Mel, that “Aussie Swimmers set to rewrite history in sprint freestyle”, describing how scary fast the 100 meter semi final was at the Australian Championships, with Matt Target posting best time 48.66, and Matthew Abood following in 48.69.
Well, today two 19-year-olds whipped the older guys in the final, James Magnussen winning in 48.29, and James Roberts coming second with a 48.72. Magnussen’s time is the second fastest ever by an Australian in textile. If I’m not mistaken, they get to swim the 100 freestyle individual in Shanghai, while Sullivan (25), Targett (25) and maybe Abood (24) get to participate in the relays.
Kudos to the young guns!
