Cameron McEvoy turned in a textile best swim of 47.04 in the men’s 100-meter free to throw down the gauntlet to the rest of the world. That’s faster than the previous textile best of 47.10 clocked by James Magnussen at the 2012 Australian Championships.

McEvoy came up just short of Cesar Cielo’s techsuit-fueled world record of 46.91 from the 2009 World Championships.

McEvoy also broke the Commonwealth and Australian record of 47.05 set by Eamon Sullivan back in 2008.

Kyle Chalmers, just 17, uncorked a blistering 48.03 for second to earn the second spot on the Olympic squad, downing the world junior record of 48.25 set by Brazil’s Matheus Santana in 2014.

James Roberts placed third overall in 48.32, while Olympic silver medalist James Magnussen took fourth in 48.68 to miss a chance at swimming the individual event in Rio. He did make the 400 free relay squad.
