Aussie Trials 2021 Recap

18 June 2021

Blair Evans and Ash Weill moments before their races

The past five days have been full of excitement, heartbreak and elation as Australia's top swimmers descended on Adelaide for their chance to make the Dolphins team headed to Tokyo next month. Live streamed on Amazon Prime, the nation tuned in to watch fast swimming, close finishes, and new World, Commonwealth and Australian records set.

The excitement kicked off on day one with Hunter Swim Club's Meg Bailey winning silver in the 400m IM just two tenths of a second behind St. Peters Western's Jenna Forrester. The final of the 200IM was truly a Funky affair with F-Teamers Blair Evans, Gabi Peiniger, Tessa Wallace and Meg Bailey making up four of the 8 finalists. Meg swum to a third-place finish behind fellow F-Teamer Tessa Wallace who knocked 2 seconds off her PB to finished second behind Kaylee McKeown. Tessa continued to show her top form on day five in the final of the 200m Breaststroke event finishing just under qualifying time in third place behind Jenna Strauch and Abbey Harkin.

Katja won the 50m Freestyle Multi Class event with a time of 26.80. Our newest F-Teamer Tiffany Thomas Kane had a top swim in the 200m IM Multi Class event finishing second in a time of 3:05.90. She returned to the pool on night 4 to smash out a win in the 100m Breaststroke Multi Class event.
