FOR more than 30 WA swimmers, the upcoming 2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Trials is their shot at making the Commonwealth Games.

Some big names are in the mix to hit the water, including 2012 London Olympian Tommaso D’Orsogna and 2016 Rio Olympians Brianna Throssell, Blair Evans and Tamsin Cook – who will join more than two dozen other WA swimmers vying for a place on the Australian swim team.

Swimming WA chief executive Darren Beazley said in the four years since the last Commonwealth Games, Swimming WA and WAIS had created clearer pathways for WA’s talented swimmers to compete on the big stage.

“The number of West Australian athletes travelling to nationals each year has increased, but equally importantly, the performances by West Australian athletes have improved as we have progressed from ‘making up the numbers’, to being true contenders for medals,” he said.

“I am incredibly proud of our efforts to this point and wish our talented coaches and athletes the very best on the Gold Coast.”

The 2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Trials is on February 28 to March 3 at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games begin on April 4.
