No Gold Cap For Cate Campbell But In Heats She’s Just 0.08sec Shy Of Olympic-Title Pace

Cate Campbell, of Australia, by Patrick B. Kraemer

And so it begins. The season after the one in which eight big podium targets turned to dust for the biggest guns of Australian swimming. How to get past it? Jumping back on is the first step. Cameron McEvoy did it this morning as Hancock Prospecting Australian Championships got underway in Brisbane when he uncorked a 21.73 in the dash heats of a condensed five-day meet without semis. Top of the world ranks for him. And then there was Cate Campbell. Can she really not be persuaded to show up for the relay at world titles in Budapest this July? She won’t be in the 100 free at world titles this summer. No word on the relay yet but it looks like she won’t be there either unless someone can persuade her to convert ‘long-standing’ to ‘busman’s’ just for the sake of Dolphin supremacy
