Independent Panel Moves to Next Phase

14 September 2021

Submissions to the independent panel have now closed.

The panel, comprising of Chris Ronalds AO SC, Professor Alexandra (Alex) Parker and Katherine Bates, will now begin the next phase of their work as they start to form their review and report into issues related to women and girls' experience and advancement in the sport of swimming. 

While all members of the panel possess extensive experience and knowledge to undertake the work of the review, if they require specific technical swimming advice, the panel will consult swimmers, coaches and other appropriate people for information.

This panel is also supported by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) through the Australian Institute of Sport, and Swimming Australia.

The panel will report findings and recommendations to the Presidents of both the ASC and Swimming Australia.
