The Vorgee Million Metres Awards Program is open to all registered members of Masters Swimming Australia.


The program aims to stimulate all members to strive for greater fitness, and acknowledges the progression from the “learn to swim” beginner to the distance swimmer.

History

The Million Metres Awards Program was launched in the late 1970’s under the sponsorship of City Mutual.

Vorgee, a supplier of an extensive range of swimming goggles, caps, swimwear & training equipment, was thrilled to become the naming rights sponsor of the Million Metre Awards after becoming a sponsor of Masters Swimming Australia in 2007. They provide certificates, prizes, trophies and the clothing awards, allowing us to reward the members who clock up an incredible number of metres in the water.

  • The Million Metres Awards Program was updated in 2001, with milestones recognised at one, three & ten million metres.
  • In 2004, milestones were added for five & seven million metres.
  • In 2007, the two million metre milestone was added.
  • In 2008, the programe was expanded to recognise swimmers who attain fifteen million metres.
  • Since then we’ve been very excited to add the twenty million metres, and 2021 saw the first member reach the twenty-five million metre milestone, providing ongoing recognition to those who continue to excel in long distance swimming.
  • 2021 has seen the exciting development of the MSA Million Metres app which facilitates the recording of your swims on your mobile device from poolside, or at your leisure, and automatically keeps track of your progress in the award program.
