Cameron McEvoy became just the second Australian man to ever win the 50-100-200 free triple with his 50 free victory at the 2015 Australian Short Course Championships.

Original Report:

24 hours after breaking Ian Thorpe’s 200m freestyle Commonwealth record, Cam McEvoy kept the records tumbling with his 20.75 in the 50 metres freestyle final to become only the second swimmer since 1982 to win the 50,100 and 200m freestyle treble to Tom Stachewicz (1988).

McEvoy analysed his race, saying: “The first 25 metres felt a bit messy because I just wanted to get out as quick as I could and the technical side of things kind of fell apart.

“I guess with the 50 short course, after the turn it’s all about trying to get into that rhythm, not trying to over-spin and just trying to get to the other end as quick as you can as well. A lot of it is a blur.

“I’ve been very close to getting the treble the past two years at the long course championships. It is an added bonus, it’s nice to finish off a competition like that and the week with three gold medals and it’s great to do be able to do something like that for the first time in a long time.”
