That is the type of time I was expecting her to do years ago.I hope to see her in 23.8 range with her powerful strokes.


Yes maybe SA did not recognize Fran but Cate always has!

Craig Lord

Yes, she has, gheko, very much so.


Cate is also the only one swimming sub 24 three times, all suit.

Just to show how rare sub 24 is:
The current olympics and world champion in 50 free, Ranomi and Bronte, have never swum sub-24.


It is exciting also to notice upward improvement from Shayna Jack, still 17 yo, who is training with the Campbell sisters as well.
