Club coach Willy O’Callaghan said she had been careful not to overload the swimmers.

‘‘It’s a good chance to do some good times in a fairly big competition, then there’s not much happening for a while after that apart from solid training.’’
Carter Swift will go into the titles as the top ranked swimmer in the 100
