Clements produces a gutsy pool effort
QCU Rocky City's Megan Clements almost continued her national medal hunt last night at the Australian Age Championships at Brisbane's Chandler Aquatic Centre.
Clements finished fourth in the 15 years girls 200m butterfly in last night's final in 2min 21.34s.
Victoria's Samantha Hamill, who won the 100m butterfly final on the first night, won gold.
Clements, who won gold and bronze on the opening night, was eighth fastest into the final.
CQU Rocky City head coach Shane Kingston said Clements produced a very gutsy swim. Clements swims 100m backstroke today.
Clements' CQU Rocky City teammate Matt White narrowly missed a spot in the 15 years boys 100m breastroke final.
White (1:09.27s) was 12th fastest with the top-10 moving into the final.
Fellow CQU Rocky City swimmer Ben Hughes (1:13.27s) failed to progress past the heats.
Caribeae's Emily Hinz (28.12s) and Ashleigh Doble (28.88s) joined the nation's fastest 15 years girls swimmers in the 50m freestyle, but both missed out on final appearances.
Hinz (1:20.62s) and Doble (1:08.81s) also produced strong performances in their 100m breastroke and 100m buttefly heats respectively.
