Cameron McEvoy (Bachelor of ScienceAdvanced Honours) has overpowered James Magnussen in the final of the 100m freestyle event at the 2015 Hancock Prospecting National titles in Sydney.

Defending champion McEvoy claimed the national title in 48.06sec, the fastest time in the world this year.

This is McEvoy’s third win over Magnussen in the past four meets and puts him in good contention for the World Titles being staged in Kazan in July.

McEvoy also took out the 200m Freestyle and is back in the pool today for the 50m freestyle semi final.

“It’s a really solid start to the Nationals and I think we will continue to see great things in the pool over the next few days,” said Sean Carolan from Griffith Sports College.
