State Government has secured 2 national swimming championship events for Perth in 2020, which are expected to attract more than 6,000 visitors and contribute about $7 Million to the Western Australian economy.

“Western Australia has a proud history of producing elite swimmers so it will be a delight to welcome some of the country’s best up-and-comers to Perth in 2020.” Minister for Sport and Recreation Mick Murray said.

 

“With the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games set to start only a few months after these events, the timing could not be better.”

Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Swimming Championships and a new event, the Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Championships will both be held at HBF Stadium in April 2020, attracting some of the best young swimmers from around the country.

Australian Age Swimming Championships is the national event for Australians aged between 13 and 18, and the Australian Swimming Championships is for swimmers aged between 17 and 21.

“I’d like to wish all the swimmers training and trialling for these events over the next couple of years the best of luck, and we look forward to welcoming the interstate competitors and their families to the State.” Minister for Tourism Paul Papalia said.
