A virtual swim challenge inspired by the Paris Olympics

21 June – 6 July 2024

It is an exciting time ahead for swimming as our Aussie Dolphin swimmers are heading to the Paris 2024 Olympics. Gather your own team of Dolphins, to challenge yourself to swim sections of the Seine River and improve your health and wellbeing over Winter.

16 days of swimming, smashing goals, sore body parts, cheering on and support from your team, and the celebration of living your incredible life as you Swim Paris.

We have set 6 mini challenges that your team can tackle over 16 days between 21 June and 6 July. Open to MSWA members and to all general swimmers, everywhere. Do as many of the challenges or as little as you like  in a time that suits you. Your distance swam will work towards your total team distance.  Who will swim the longest distance and take out the gold?
