Today marks the tenth and final day of action at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre, with eleven Dolphins set to dive in for the last time across butterfly, freestyle, individual medley and relay events.
After swimming in the Women’s 100m Backstroke (S10) final last night, Jasmine Greenwood returns to the pool for the Women’s 200m Individual Medley (SM10). Having already won a silver medal in the Women’s 100m Butterfly (S10), Greenwood will also line up with USC Spartan athlete and 100m breaststroke (SB9) bronze medallist, Keira Stephens. With their competitors from the Netherlands on fire this meet, even though the pair are ranked within the top ten, it’s going to be a fight to the finish if they successfully make it through to the final.
Having placed a highly commendable fifth in the Men’s 100m Freestyle (S12), dual Paralympian Braedan Jason will battle it out in the Men’s 100m Butterfly (S12), while Victorian VCE student and now Paralympic bronze medallist, Col Pearse, will take to the pool for the Men’s 200m Individual Medley (S10).
South Australia’s own, Jesse Aungles, also completes his program on Friday as he tackles the Men’s 100m Butterfly (S8). After setting a number of personal bests during the Games across multiple events, Aungles will be striving to cap of his Games with more positive momentum.
In the final event of the meet, Australia will field a team in the Men’s 4x100m Medley Relay (34 points), with the team’s make up to be announced one hour before finals kick off.
