Queensland-strong 2018 Pan Pacific team

8 August 2018

The Australian Dolphins Swim Team is gearing up ahead of the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo which kicks off Thursday 9 August to 14 August 2018.

The strong squad of 33 athletes are set to take on the world’s number one swimming nation, the USA as well as Canada and Japan who are rapidly improving. Queensland dominate the Australian squad with 27 athletes and 23 of those being QAS supported.

Queenslanders and Olympic gold medallists, Emily Seebohm and Cate Campbell will be competing in their third Pan Pac team whilst the youngest female, 16 year old Kayla McKeown, will be set for her first Pan Pacs after making her Australian team debut at last year’s World Championships. QAS athletes, Clyde Lewis and Jack Cartwright will also be making their Pan Pacs debut in Tokyo.

The team stopped off in Cairns for camp before heading straight on to Japan where they have spent the week in Nagaoka training before the Championships begin.

The Pan Pacific Para Championships also take place the same time but instead they will be competing on home turf in Cairns. This gives family and friends of the athletes a great opportunity to be there and show their support throughout the campaign.

Everyone at the QAS would like to wish the Australian Dolphins Swim Team all the best in Tokyo and Cairns.
