The WA Artistic Swimming Awards were held on September 11th, where swimmers of all ages, coaches, families and friends of swimmers celebrate the successes of WA artistic swimmers from the past year at the annual awards evening. As the National Championship were this year held virtually, this was also an opportunity for everyone to come together and celebrate the successes of those who placed during the championships, and to receive their medals.
A very big welcome home was given to our Perth based Tokyo Olympians!
