A Mixed Bag for Troy at the Nationals

Troy Tomkinson had a 5 days of ups and downs at the Tip Top Australian Age Championships last week with 2 disqualifications and a 5th place.

Troy was disqualified in both the 100m Freestyle (false start) on the opening day of the championships and the 100m Butterfly (incorrect finish) on the final day. Both disqualifications occurred in the heats of the events meaning that he missed out on a possible place in the finals.

Troy's third event at the championships, the 50m Freestyle, was a much different story. He qualified for the final in a time of 26.63 to be seeded as the fifth fastest. He then backed up his qualifying position to place fifth in the final in 26.24, only 1/100th of a second behind 4th place.

As a club, Merrylands finished 133rd overall with 20 points.
