Swimming Australia has announced their Pan Pacific Swimming Championships and Pan Pacific Para Swimming Championships teams.
Olympic gold medallists Cate Campbell and Emily Seebohm have been named in their third Pan Pac teams, having made their debuts in 2010 while six time Paralympic gold medalist Ellie Cole, who has been part of the national team since 2006, will lead the Para team.
The 26-year-old picked up her second Australian Championship crown in the women’s 100m freestyle Multi Class last night. Cole is joined by USC Spartans teammate Katja Dedekind along with Paralympic stars Lakeisha Patterson and Rachael Watson.
Also back from the 2010 team is dual-Commonwealth Games 50m breaststroke gold medallist Leiston Pickett. There are eight survivors from the 2014 Gold Coast team with Jess Ashwood, Maddie Groves and Emma McKeon who join Campbell and Seebohm.
The youngest female is Kaylee McKeown, who made her Australian team debut at last year’s World Championships in Budapest with 17-year-old Commonwealth Games star Ariarne Titmus, who wrapped up the 400-800m freestyle double, as one of 11 teenagers on the team.
The women’s team also sees one of two rookies on the team, Maddy Gough who swam her way onto the team with a stunning personal best time on night one in the 1500m freestyle and is joined by TSS Aquatic tea mates Kiah Melverton and Laura Taylor.
The para team sees the late addition of Ashleigh McConnell and is joined by Victorian teammate Jaime-Lee Getson.
