Swimming Australia Edits National Trials Format Removes SemiFinals From LineUp

Swimming Australia has announced a change in the format of their national team trials, beginning next year.

Traditionally the meet has run for eight days so as to mimic the format of major international meets, complete with prelims, semi-finals, and finals. The format originally came about under the leadership of former head coach Don Talbot in an effort to better prepare the national team for competing in the international format. However, the organization has recently elected to reduce the meet from eight days to five, cutting out all semi-final heats.

National Coach Jacco Verhaeren explained to The Australian, “we don’t have the depth to have making semi-finals a real challenge for the top athletes, so we want to put more pressure on the heats.”

Under the new format swimmers will need to set a top eight time in preliminaries in order to move on to the finals. The top two athletes during finals will then secure a spot on the national team for next summer’s World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
