TLA’s own Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell contributed prominently as successful members of the 4×100 mixed medley. Cate Campbell also delivered on a personal front, winning gold in the 50m and 100m freestyle and breaking Pan Pacific Championship records in both events.

The Australian women managed five silver medals in the individual events including efforts from Ariarne Titmus, Kiah Melverton, Emily Seebohm and Jess Hansen. These results laid the basis for a dominant performance in the women’s relays, the Australian women winning all three 4x100m events.

Kyle Chalmers won the 100m freestyle over fellow Aussie Jack Cartwright in 2nd place. Jack McLoughlin was able to win gold in 400m freestyle in front of TLA athlete Mack Horton. McLoughlin also placed in the 800m and 1500m freestyle behind tough American competition.

The men weren’t able to get the same results as the women in the relays. However they did manage two 2nd place efforts in the 4x100m freestyle and the 4x200m freestyle as well as 3rd place in the 4x100m medley.
