History

From the days of hastily organised swimming races in rain-filled quarries through to competing against the world’s best, Victorian swimming has come a long way. 

In the 100 years since the formation of the Victorian Amateur Swimming Association, champions such as Frank Beaurepaire, Judy Joy Davies, John Marshall and Nicole Livingstone (Stevenson) have gone on to represent their state, and their country, at the highest level. 

“The First 100, A Century of Swimming in Victoria”, written by Melbourne journalist John McDonald, with research by Swimming Victoria President Peter Foard and former executive director Len Willmer, captures the people and events that  have shaped Victoria’s swimming history. 

"The First 100" is available from the Swimming Victoria Office for $19.95 (plus postage and handling). If you would like a copy, please contact 03 9686 5222 or email sv.admin@vic.swimming.org.au
