I watched the start of this event, waiting for the Aussie line up to appear, but there was no Aussie line up. How come? We could have been in there with a real chance of winning gold.

Aussies decided not to enter as this race was mid-week and our best still have a number of races to race.

Still, you woulda thought some of our squad with no more races guaranteed (eg Kyle Chalmers) could’ve helped form a probable medal winning team.

It’s probably a shame some of these mickey-mouse events aren’t left till the last day of the programme.

The Aussies are listed to start in Saturday’s mixed freestyle relay though, where they will be the favourites.

^ and of course because it’s not an Olympic event like the 50m form strokes (where we also didn’t select anyone unless they were already picked in other events)
