Does anyone know if Cartwright has turned 18?
He’s listed as born in 1998 but no date/month, and he was listed as 17yo at the Australian trials in April.

Anyway, even if he’s already 18, the PBs that he swam at this meet are really great:
22.28, 48.91,1:47.68
How many swimmers have been faster (in textile) in all three distances at his age?
Right now I can only think 2 swimmers: Chalmers and McEvoy.

Just found out from Australian Dolphins Swim team facebook that Jack Cartwright is still 17 yo.

I’m now 100% sure that only Chalmers is faster in all 50-100-200 at 17 yo!

Not bad. At all.
