Commonwealth Festival of Synchronised Swimming
Perth, Western Australia
1 - 5 September 2015
Swimmers, coaches and officials from Canada, Jamaica, England, Scotland, Malta, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, The Philippines and Australia will take part in the Hancock Prospecting Commonwealth Festival of Synchronised Swimming at HBF Stadium from 1 - 5 September 2015. The event will feature a number of swimmers and officials who recently took part in the FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia.
Also competing is our very own SA Youth Synchro Team who will take part in a range of events including, Solo, Duet, Team and Combination. The team of 12 includes 7 from the Eastern Cape including the manager. A further 5 swimmers from the Eastern Cape plus 2 judges and 2 coaches will also attend.
Synchronised Swimming is currently an ‘optional’ Commonwealth sport and this festival is being held to prove that Synchro is alive and well and should be re-introduced as a ‘core’ sport.
Here the SA Youth Synchro Team prepare for the competition at the Newton Park Aquatic Centre.
We wish our team all the best!
