Greatness was on show during January 2020 with the 2020 South Australian Country Championships in Murray Bridge (January 9 to 12) followed by the South Australian Long Course Championships at the SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre from Saturday 18 to Thursday 23 January.
Some amazing racing, personal bests and team spirit from all involved - Athletes, Coaches, Team Support, Officials and Volunteers across the two meets.
