Cate Campbell has set a one hundred metres freestyle planet record during the 200m final at the Australian Brief Course Championships in Sydney.
Coach Simon Cusack challenged his star pupil to break the 51.38 mark set by Libby Trickett in 2009 following Saturday morning’s 200m heats.
And the 23-year-old responded in perfect fashion, re-writing the record books with a beautiful 50.91-second swim more than the initial 100m before cruising the rest of the way to record an official time of two:18.26.
Far more to come.
