Meet review: 2016 closes off!

20 December 2016

Funky Trunks F-Teamers racing globally

December has been a huge month for our Funky Trunks F-Teamers with meets on both sides of the globe. Check out our meet wrap below to see how our F-Teamers finished the year on a high!

ASA National Winter Meet

Max Litchfield

F-Teamer Max Litchfield capped off an amazing year by returning home from his silver medal win at World Short Course Championships to jump straight back into the pool for the ASA National Winter Meet. Max grabbed gold in both the 200m and 400m IM as well as a silver in the 200m free.

Jacob Peters

We introduced you to Jacob Peters in the first edition of the UK 'Ones to Watch' blog last week, and already this F-Teamer has lifted the bar. Jacob smashed the 54 second barrier to win the B final of the 100m fly with a time of 53.62 - the fastest time by a 16-year-old Brit ever.

Tom Derbyshire

Tom Derbyshire has had a BIG 2016. He came the European Junior Champion for the 1500m free with a huge PB swim, he moved to Bath for University which meant a new coach and squad, and then was nominated in the SportsAid Ones to Watch awards. Tom came third in the 1500m free and sixth in the 400m free. Nice work Tom!

Queensland State Championships

Zac Incerti

Perth swimmer Zac travelled across the country for a hit-out before the Western Australian State Titles. The 20-year-old came second in the 100m backstroke with a time of 55.19. Zac also tested his freestyle legs in the 100m free where he came sixth (50.79).

Jack McLoughlin

Distance specialist Jack McLoughlin got straight back into training after returning from his debut Olympics in Rio. Jack won gold in both the 400m free (3:48.87) and the 1500m free (15:10.68).

Victorian Age Championships

Ryan Bicknell

15-year-old Ryan Bicknell had a big race schedule for the Victorian Age Championships and walked away from the meet with gold in the 100m and 200m breaststroke and 400m IM, as well as bronze in the 200m IM.

Ryan is a breaststroker, so it's natural that he lists his best performance as the 100m.

"I executed my race plan perfectly and because of that, I got a one second PB," he says.

For Ryan, the first half of 2017 will be a big one with the Australian Age Championships on in April. He's ready for the next phase of training having learnt a valuable lesson at the Victorian Age Championships.

"During the meet I learnt that it's easier and faster to build speed into the wall so that you already have plenty of momentum off the wall to have a fast breakout," he says.


2016, you've been great but we are ready for an even bigger and better 2017 for our Funky Trunkers!
