Camp­bell swims on

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

CATE Camp­bell has re­vealed plans to swim on to a fourth Olympic Games in 2020 be­fore she will even con­sider re­tire­ment.

The world’s fastest swim­mer is pre­par­ing to be­come the first woman in 40 years to de­fend a 100m freestyle world ti­tle. Camp­bell, 23, will leave next week for the world ti­tles in Rus­sia, where she will look to claim con­sec­u­tive 100m freestyle crowns.

Only three Aus­tralian women – Libby Trick­ett, Leisel Jones and Jes­sicah Schip­per – have ever de­fended a world ti­tle.

Only East Ger­man Kor­nelia En­der has done it in the 100m freestyle.
