Road to Rio
Dual world champion James Magnussen bounces back from the disappointment of missing a place in the 100m freestyle at the Olympic Games, by leading the field through the 50m freestyle heats at the Australian Olympic trials in Adelaide. Shoulder reconstruction has not slowed him down.
34 swimmers named to the 2016 Australian Olympic Team, 19 women and 15 men. McEvoy became the first Aussie to claim 3 free titles in the same year.

Yucatecan diver Rommel Pacheco won gold in the 3-meter springboard competition at the FINA Diving World Cup 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
Despite the victory of Pacheco, the flag raised highest during the medal ceremony was that of FINA, as Mexican athletes are currently competing under the care of aquatic sport’s governing body due to their nation’s suspension.
