Life In The Fast Lane As Top Swimmers Head West

Published on : Monday, February 8, 2016

wstSome of the world’s best swimmers will face off at the Perth Aquatic Super Series this week, with many making their final Australian appearance before the Olympic Games.

 

The star-studded Australian Dolphins swim squad is set for two nights of tough competition against China and Japan at HBF Stadium today and tomorrow (February 5-6).

 

Australia is represented by world record holders Cate Campbell and Mitch Larkin, FINA world champions Emily Seebohm and Bronte Campbell as well as James Magnussen and an impressive line-up of rising stars.

 

London Olympic gold medallist Ye Shiwen will headline the Chinese team, while the Japanese squad includes two-time Olympic medallist Takuro Fujii and women’s world championship breaststroke medallist Rie Kaneto.

 

The international contest in Perth will offer ideal preparation for swimmers, and a special preview for spectators, ahead of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August.

 

The races will be televised live across Australia, and broadcast around the world, providing valuable exposure of Western Australia.

 

The Perth Aquatic Super Series is sponsored by the State Government through Tourism WA, which supports a range of events and initiatives that together aim to increase the value of tourism in Western Australia to $12 billion by 2020.
