SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre prepares for Pan Pac Trials

SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre prepares for Pan Pac Trials
May 31, 2018

Following their successful Commonwealth Games performances, Australia’s swimming heroes will be performing at SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Adelaide for the 2018 Hancock Prospecting Pan Pacific Championship Trials this July.

Due to be held from 30th June to 4th July, competitors will be aiming to secure a place on the Australian Dolphins Swim Team bound for Pan Pacs and Para Pan Pacs Championship events.

South Australian’s will have even more reason to cheer this year with the Marion swim squad securing two more Olympians on the road to Tokyo in Madison Wilson and Brittany Elmslie, plus Commonwealth Games rookie and promising rising star James McKechnie.

The championship races will begin on Saturday 30th June with both the men’s 800 metre freestyle and the women’s 1500 metre freestyle, the curtain-raiser events, open free to the public.

Thereafter, from 1st to 4th July, the Championship will feature sponsor activations, athlete signings, a live DJ and prizes and giveaways, leading up to the final night of racing on 4th July when both the Pan Pacs and Para Pan Pacs teams are selected.

The Pan Pacs Team will head to Cairns and the Japanese city of Nagaoka for a staging camp before taking on the world in Tokyo, where the Australian Dolphins Swim Team will get the chance to familiarise themselves with the Olympic host city ahead of the Games as they compete from 9th to 13th August.

The Para Pan Pacs Team will have the hometown advantage this year as their international rivals head to Cairns for the competition also taking place from 9th to 13th August.
