F-Teamers ready for Australian SC Champs

23 October 2019

'Lulu Macleod
F-Teamer Lulu Macleod is one of the youngest swimmers on the program

From October 24 - 26, swimmers from across the country will fill the Melbourne Sports Aquatic Centre for the 2019 Hancock Prospecting Australian Short Course Swimming Championships. With its long-standing history of producing fast and fierce competition, the Championships welcome Funkita F-Teamers Lulu Macleod, Emma Malcolm, Sophie Caldwell, Gabriella Peiniger, Meg Bailey, Taylor Corry, Tessa Wallace and Crystal Edwards.

Despite being one of the youngest swimmers on the program, 15-year-old Lulu Macleod is well equipped and ready to race in the 400m and 200m Freestyle events alongside fellow F-Teamer Sophie Caldwell. Sophie, one of Nunawading's top long-distance swimmers, also adds the gruelling 1500m Free and 400m IM events to her program. That's a whopping 75 flip turns....ouch!

Taylor Corry
Taylor Corry is hoping to continue her success at the Australian SC Championships

Having just come off the back of some phenomenal swimming at the Para World Championships in September where she won bronze in the 4x100m S14 Mixed Freestyle, Taylor Corry will carry her momentum into a huge program at the Short Course Champs. Taylor will tackle the Women's MC 400m, 100m and 50m Freestyle, 200 IM, 100m and 50m Butterfly, 100m Breaststroke and 50m Backstroke events. As her program suggests, Corry swims with a determination, mental toughness and never-say-die attitude that we will be excited to watch throughout the Championships.

You can also be sure to find our Commonwealth Games swimmer Meg Bailey tearing it up in the IM across the 200m and 400m distances together with her 200m Butterfly.

Tessa Wallce
Breaststroke queen Tessa Wallace is ready to make waves

2012 Olympian, Commonwealth Games medallist and breaststroke queen Tessa Wallace will be making waves in the 50m, 100m and 200m Women's Open Breaststroke. Her program doesn't stop there, where she will tear-up the 200m and 400m IM alongside the 50m and 100m Butterfly events.

Melbourne Vicentre swimmer Gabriella Peiniger has had a fantastic year of racing, with her highlight being the World Junior Championships in August where she represented Australia. Aiming to keep up her outstanding results, Peiniger will step onto the Championship pool deck with confidence for the 100m Freestyle, 50m & 100m Butterfly and 100m and 200m IM races.

Also representing Melbourne Vicentre with Gabriella is Emma Malcolm who is preparing to fly through her 50m and 100m Butterfly events. Young gun F-Teamer Crystal Edwards will also join Emma in these events, whilst gearing up for the 50m and 100m Breaststroke, 100m Butterfly and 200m Freestyle to complete her Australian Championship program.
