USC’s silver Spartans return from world titles

16 Aug 2017

Star swimmers of the USC Spartans squad are set to return to training at the USC Pool this week after an impressive campaign at the FINA World Championships in Hungary.

Sixteen-year-old Kaylee McKeown and USC students Leah Neale and Taylor McKeown all secured silver medals for outstanding performances in relay events for the Australian team.

The swimmers also recorded some blistering times in individual races, including a new junior world record by Kaylee in 200m backstroke final, in which she finished fourth.

Sisters Kaylee and Taylor will be back in training at the USC Pool tomorrow.
