Ahead of next month’s Aquatic Super Series in Perth, some of our swimming stars are competing in the 2014 FINA World Short Course Championships, which begin in Doha tonight.

Queenslanders Emily Seebohm and Mitch Larkin lead the Aussie charge for Gold and are strong contenders according to the odds from online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au:

Mitchell Larkin is an odds on favourite at $1.72 to win Gold in the Men’s 100m backstroke.

Emily Seebohm leads her field at $2.00 to win Gold in the Women’s 100m backstroke.

Cameron McEvoy is an outside chance at $9.00 to pick up Gold in the Men’s 100m freestyle.

Australia is on the fourth line of betting at $3.50 in the Men’s 4 x 100m Freestyle.

“This is a great lead-in to the Aquatic Super Series in Perth and we’re looking likely to come back from Doha with at least a couple of Gold medals,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
