Swimming Victoria Age Championships 2021

March 11, 2021

This was Victoria's first heats and finals championship in a long while, and we were well represented.

The long awaited Age Championships were held over a revised five day format. Given the changes made to the recent Swimming Victoria Open Championships due to the snap lock-down, the Age meet was expanded to include a further opportunity for our Open swimmers to gain competition practice. The meet comprised a day-heats / night-finals program, to give the extra chance to gain valuable racing experience.

The club achieved some outstanding results. Below are our finalists and top-10 finishers:
