After a disappointing swim in the mens 100 freestyle preliminaries at the Australian Olympic Trials, it is now official that Ian Thorpe will not get to compete at the London Olympics. On a more positive note, Leisel Jones qualified with a time of 1:07.64 in the 100 breaststroke, yesterday evening, behind Leiston Pickett in 1:06.88, making Jones the first Australian swimmer ever to qualify for four Olympic Squads. Thomas Fraser-Holmes and Kenrick Monk qualified in the 200 freestyle with 1:46.88 and 1:47.16 respectively, Emily Seebohm and Belinda Hocking in the 100 backstoke with 59.28 and 59.41, and Hayden Stoeckel and Daniel Arnamnart in the mens’ 100 back with 53.98 and 54.05 respectively.
