World record set for NSWIS athlete in swimming trials

NSWIS swimmers are reflecting on a successful meet at the Hancock Prospecting Australian Championships in Brisbane last week.

Paralympian Matthew Levy has gone from strength to strength in the pool with a win in the 200m Individual Medley Multi Class Final coming after he set a stunning world record in the 200m Freestyle Multi Class.

The men’s 50m Backstroke Multi Class event saw 16 year old Sydney schoolboy and NSWIS athlete Timothy Hodge take the national crown in 30.57 (926pts), he also took bronze in the 100m Butterfly Multi Class. NSWIS teammate Tiffany Thomas Kane won two golds in the 50m and 100m Breaststroke Multi Class, and also took silver in the 200m Individual Medley Multi Class.

In the men’s 100m Breaststroke Matthew Wilson capped off a stellar week with a silver medal, just a fraction of a second the difference between himself and first place. Wilson had taken the 200m Breaststroke title earlier in the week – finally earning himself a spot on the Australian team for the World Championships in Budapest in July.

A successful NSWIS week in the pool was rounded off with a bronze for Taylor Corry in the women’s 100m Butterfly Multi Class, and another for Maddison Elliott in the 100m Breaststroke Multi Class.

Taylor Corry rounded out the NSWIS performances with a third place in the women’s 100m Butterfly Multi Class.
