Multi Class Competition

Multi Class Competition

Multi Class (MC) events see swimmers with a range of disabilities, competing in the same race. In order to compete in MC competition swimmers must have an eligible classification. Event results are determined using the Multi Class Point Score system. Swimmers race against the world’s best time in that event for their classification. The winner of the race is not always who touches the wall first, but the swimmer who posts the highest point score (i.e. a time closest to the world’s best time for their classification). Swimmers may be granted certain exceptions to the normal swimming rules in order to compete fairly. This allows for meaningful and fair competition for all swimmers.

Check the Swimming Australia events calendar or contact your State Swimming Association for details about up-coming Multi Class competitions.
