Talent Program stars sweep the field on Night Four of GHF Age Champs

Day four of the Australian Age Championships saw the Swimming Australia Pathways Program shine in a night full of brilliant battles.

Four up and comers from the Talent program took home top spots in two of the toughest fought 400 Individual Medley's around: Emilie Muir, Kayla Hardy, Thomas Hauck and Thomas Neill.
 
The Girls 15yrs 400IM delivered the race of the night and possibly the meet with less than a second separating the top three finishers. Norwood’s Emilie Muir claimed the Gold ahead of Kayla Hardy and Shikira-Lee Matheson of St Peters Western. For the boys, the battle of the Thomas’ continued with Thomas Hauck and Thomas Neill going head to head once again. Hauck took the Gold ahead of Neill while Charlie Hawke rounded out the top three.
 
Paris Burlock and Kate Harrison couldn’t be split (56.68) in the Girls 13yrs 100m Freestyle and stood atop the podium together ahead of Sydney Brown (57.42). Stefanie McCarthy went one better in the 14yrs 50m Freestyle, taking Gold ahead of Crystal Edwards and Emily Barany while in the 14yrs 400m Freestyle, Jenna Forrester was named Australian Age Champion after finishing a cruisy six seconds ahead of silver medallist Emily White and Bronze medallist, Kirralee Shepherd.
 
After dropping the 15yrs 200m Backstroke on the first day, UWA’s Joshua Edwards-Smith was back on top in the 100m event, narrowly missing the 56.18 Australian record. Laura Taylor battled hard to take out the 17-18yrs 100m Butterfly ahead of Brittany Castelluzo and Tanya Stovgaard. A gutsy swim from Ryan Bicknell ensured he claimed gold in the 16yrs 200m Breaststroke ahead of South Shore’s Matthew Joubert and UWA’s Aleksandr Bell.
 
St Peters Western continued their dominant form taking out the Girls 18&U 4x200m Freestyle Relay a brilliant ten seconds ahead of TSS Aquatics and Carlile. While in the boys, it was Carlile who claimed the top spot ahead of Nunawading and Ravenswood.
