From 5-8 April 2013, over 400 swimmers with an intellectual disability from Australia and Japan represented their local program at the Canberra Centenary Swimming Competition.

For this long-course swimming event, athletes stayed and competed at the first-class facilities of the Australian Institute of Sport - the home of Australian champions.

Athletes also took part in free health screenings for their teeth and general health as part of the two-day Healthy Athletes program which was delivered by volunteer health professionals.

The Canberra Centenary Swimming Competition was proudly supported by the ACT Government Community Centenary Initiatives Fund, as part of the 100-year celebrations of our nation's capital.
