Cate Campbell - by Delly Carr / Swimming Australia Ltd

The 100m freestyle pace among the best women sprinters in the world this new year just took a giant leap forward: in 52.37, Cate Campbell shattered her own all-comers NSW record on the first day at state titles in Sydney. The swim – the swiftest two-lapper of the first five months of any calendar year in history – marked her fourth-fastest ever in a career ranking topped by 27 sub-53 efforts. Earlier in the session, Campbell clocked 25.68 to take down the NSW record in the 50m butterfly that had stood to 100m Olympic champion of 2008, Libby Lenton (Trickett), at 26.02 since the last season of shiny suits in 2009.
