SwimmingEdit

Australian swimmers earned qualifying standards in the following events (up to a maximum of 2 swimmers in each event at the A-standard entry time, and 1 at the B-standard):[3] Swimmers must qualify at the 2015 Australian Championships (for pool events) to confirm their places for the Worlds.

Thirty-six swimmers (22 men and 24 women) have been selected to compete for the Australian team, including defending World champions Christian Sprenger in the 100 m breaststroke and Cate Campbell in the 100 m freestyle.[4][5] 2012 Olympic silver medalist and two-time reigning World champion James Magnussen was set to compete, but later withdrew from the team because of a shoulder injury, having been ruled out to defend his Worlds title in the 100 m freestyle.[6][7]
