Swimming Australia Limited (SAL) has implemented significant change since the disappointing London 2012 Olympic campaign. There is new leadership across the sport and there has been encouraging progress in implementing the recommendations of the Independent Swimming Review.

The 2013 world championships in Barcelona resulted in improved performance in and out of the pool, while the performance of the Paralympic swimming team at the Montreal world championships was positive and in line with expectations. SAL is well placed to be a major gold medal contributor at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The sport has made good progress towards implementing the mandatory governance principles, with further changes on track to be completed in 2014 to achieve full compliance.

SAL is working with the ASC on a number of participation projects in line with a new organisational strategy to engage with the broader swimming audience and support the sport's long-term viability.
