KY Hurst and Kate Brookes-Peterson continued their domination of the Australian open water swimming championships at a windswept St Kilda Beach yesterday.
The pair added the 5km national titles to Thursday’s wins over the Olympic distance of 10km.
Hurst, a five-time Australian open surf race winner, revelled i n the choppy conditions which made the back end of the races very difficult for most of the competitors.
The 25-year-old, who will join Ian Thorpe’s form e r c o a c h T r a c e y Menzies next year, took just over an hour to complete the course, beating Brisbane teenager David Browne by three seconds.
The result meant Browne, 18, narrowly earned his place on the Australian team for next year’s world championships in Melbourne after he edged out 25km world champion and Home Hill product Josh Santacaterina in a sprint for the lucrative second qualifying spot.
Although every other competitor in the event admitted it was tough going, Hurst revealed it was possibly the easiest 5km swim of his career.
‘‘To be quite truthful it was really easy, probably the slowest-paced race I’ve ever been in,’’ Hurst said. his credit, took it out in the first half of the race and it was probably inexperience on his part that cost him in the end.
‘‘No one else wanted to lead and at several times during the race both Hayden and I resorted to swimming backstroke.
‘‘I had plenty in reserve for the sprint to the line.’’
Hurst will contest the 10km and the 5km events at next year’s world championships over the same course in March.
Brookes-Peterson won her sixth Australian open water title by a whopping 1 minute 46 seconds.
However only two s e c o n d s s e p a r a t e d Canada’s Karley Stutzel and Queensland duo Trudee Hutchinson and Alexandra Bagley for second, third and fourth in a photo finish.
‘‘It was very rocky on the swim north but so easy on the way back with the wind behind you,’’ Brookes-Peterson said.
