This should be a very useful international experience for some of the swimmers. Particularly for Madeline Groves, who would face Natsumi Hoshi in the 200m butterfly. Also useful for Josh Beaver, who would face Ryosuke Irie in 100m and 200m backstroke. Mr. Morgan facing Daiya Seto in 200m butterfly and Mr. Sucipto facing the multitude of Japanese breaststroke specialist would also find the experience very rewarding.

I’m tipping a big breakout this year for young Emma!!!!!

I agree.. At this stage I see the Japan and Australia cooperation as mutually beneficial

At 2007 Japan Open, a certain just-turned 15 yo girl defeated the then newly-minted 50 free world champion Libby Trickett in 24.48
