SYDNEY (Dispatches) - An updated post from Swimming Australia has implied that it was almost impossible for all swimmers based on the state of Victoria to attend the Olympic Swimming Trials for qualifying.
While Swimming Australia’s funded athletes were told to leave Victoria ahead of the state’s fourth lockdown, second tier swimmers were left behind.
In line with the current restrictions, travelers arriving from Victoria are not permitted to enter the state of South Australia, placing in doubt their ability to feature at next week’s qualifying event.
Although there are processes in place to apply for an exemption as an essential traveler to enter South Australia, these are difficult to obtain.
