Olympic hope Kaylee McKeown set a new 200m short distance world record at the Australian Championships.

« Short course is something we don’t get very often so I was excited to see what I can take after some solid training this year, » said McKeown.

« I went to my teammates and my coach and they said, ‘You just set a world record and I thought what?’ I didn’t know until a few minutes later. « 

The Australian Short Distance Championships will be held in virtual format this year due to Covid-19. At the same time, swimmers compete in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Hobart.

The titles started on Thursday when McKeown set their record in Brisbane on Friday night, although Swimming Australia didn’t tweet the result until Saturday.

The 19-year-old has good prospects for the Australian Olympic team for Tokyo next year, having won silver in the 200m backstroke at last year’s World Endurance Championship in South Korea.
