Swimming is without a doubt Australia’s most successful Olympic sport with swimmers representing our nation at every summer Olympics since 1900. Swimming can be an individual or team sport as well as an activity for people of all ages. Competitions are most commonly held in pools but are also undertaken in open water for example as a part of a triathlon.
Demanding strength and speed along with endurance for longer events, training is mostly undertaken at the pool to improve technique and form. Swimmers also put in time at the gym to work on their strength and conditioning.
