Tristan Ludlow in the yellow cap gets set for the backstroke event in Adelaide

Just 23/100 of a second lay on the water between first and third in a 200 metre swim race at the Australian Age Championships held in Adelaide last weekend.

Local swimmer Tristan Ludlow from Ocean Shores clocked up 2.02.77, a mere hairsbreadth behind the first and second place winners in the event. Tristan also came third in the 100 metres backstroke with a time of 58.01.

Tristan also placed fourth in the 400 freestyle, seventh in the 200 freestyle, 11th in the 200 butterfly and 25th in the 100 fly. A very busy meet for the lad, who will be returning to Adelaide to swim at school nationals in September.
