It also works with these organisations, and through the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and State and Territory Institutes and Academies, to develop elite sporting excellence.
The ASC also works to uphold the integrity of sport through many innovative programs ranging from the promotion of ethical sporting practices on and off the field to the enforcement of Australia’s commitment to keeping sport free of performance- enhancing drugs.
Speedo is the world’s leading swimwear brand and is passionate about life in and around the water, creating revolutionary new technologies, designs and innovations.
