As part of their association with Swimming Australia, Fisher and Paykel sponsored the recent National Age Group Swimming Trials held at Homebush Aquatic Centre. The event allows the cream of Australia’s swimming youth to test their might against each other, all competing for selection into the state and national youth squads known playfully as the Fisher & Paykel Flippers.

Once selected as a Flipper, you’re on the straight and narrow to become what ever talented young swimmer aspires to be, a Dolphin – that is, selected onto the Australian Swim Team and groomed for international competition.

Channel 9’s Today Show hosted their weather crosses from the event towards the end of the meet, showcasing swimmers destined to be the next big name in the sport.
