Australian Short Course Championships

The Australian Short Course Championships run Wednesday, July 13 through Sunday, July 17, in Melbourne. Because of the time difference, prelims are already underway Down Under, even though it is still Tuesday night in America. Top finishers from this meet will qualify to represent Australia at the World Short Course Championships this December in Dubai, but many swimmers are simply using this meet as a tune-up for the upcoming Pan Pacs and Commonwealth Games. Full session recaps will be available at Swimming Australia's website, and live results can be found here. I will predict event winners for the meet.
