Membership Certificates

Please contact MSA now to organise one if you are going to Korea.
It is wise to get this done early.  You will not be able to swim without it.

Bit of back ground information:

Masters Swimming Australia was overwhelmed by the response we received from the call out for an Australian Ambassador to the Fina Worlds Masters Championships in Gwangju in August 2019 that was requested by Fina Marketing.

All the applicants demonstrated  how passionate they are about Masters Swimming, their own quest for success in Masters competitions and their interest in the success of the upcoming Fina Championships. This response made it very difficult to make a selection of just one person, so we convened a face to face meeting to select the candidate. We are pleased to advise that the successful applicant is Tony Goodwin, from the NSW Manly Masters Swimming Club.

Tony is one of Australia’s most successful athletes at a World Masters Level.. Having won ten gold medals and broken nine world records, He is continually reaching new heights when it comes to his performance in the pool; and was reported as saying “he does not want to hang up the goggles yet and is already looking forward to the next Masters Championships in Gwangju in 2019. At the World Masters Championships in Budapest, Tony won gold in the 200m breaststroke for the fourth time in a row, as well as taking home three silver and a bronze.

Tony will be helping share any official information about the FINA World Masters Championships Gwangju 2019 that will assist you in planning your travel. Australia traditionally has 100 plus swimmers enter the Meet, and as Sth Korea is our neighbour, we hope that that attendance will be as strong as possible in 2019.

Welcome Tony – we look forward to sharing your insights and Fina information with everyone. Please also if you have anything to share email Tony (  or the MSA office.
