Mitch Larkin, who set a new 200m backstroke world record last night, continued the record rage, twice setting new Commonwealth, Australian and Australian All-Comers records – first off in his individual 100m backstroke final with a sizzling 49.04 and then improving it 30 minutes later to 49.03 as he led the St Peters Western medley relay team to an Australian club relay record – just 0.09 shy of Nick Thoman’s 2009 world mark of 48.94.

      Sorry about that. We’d done a good job of putting 2015 Australian Short Course Championships in all the rest. Just missed this one.
