Jenna Strauch faces an anxious wait to see if she qualifies for Australia's team for next month's World Swimming Championships in South Korea.
The Bendigo-raised swimmer finished second in the 100m breaststroke in the world swimming titles selection trials in Brisbane on Monday night.
A top-two finish is part of the selection criteria, however Swimming Australia has also set qualifying times.
Strauch equalled her personal best time of 1:07.79 in finishing a close second behind Jessica Hansen.
Both Strauch and Hansen finished outside the 1:06.81 qualification mark set by Swimming Australia.
Stracuh, who is now based on the Gold Coast, still has her pet event to swim on Thursday - the 200m breaststroke.
On times, Strauch enters the meet as the third seed in the 200m breaststroke.
She swam a time of 2:24.88 to win the final of the 200m breatstroke at the Australian Swimming Championships in Adelaide in April.
To earn automatic selection for the Australian team for the world titles Strauch needs to finish in the top two in the 200m final and swim a time inside 2:23.81.
Late last year Strauch made her first Australian senior team when she competed in the 200m breaststroke at the World Short Course Championships in China.
Strauch began her swimming career at Bendigo East.
She then had four years training in Melbourne and has spent the past three years based on the Gold Coast.
