IATF approves PH swimming national tryouts in NCC

After two years, Philippine swimming is set for a comeback.

The Inter-Agency Task Force has approved the Philippine Swimming Incorporated’s request to hold the 2021 Swimming National Selection meet.

The nationals will take place from August 28-30 in a bubble set up at the New Clark City Aquatics Center in Capas, Tarlac.

“Kaugnay nito, lahat ng mga national selection meet participants ay magiging authorized persons outside of residence at papayagan ng inter-zonal travel,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque announced during a press briefing, Friday.

The event will follow the Department of Health protocols for non-professional leagues. With this, only 100 athletes and 100 in-venue personnel are allowed in the center per day.

There will be 32 men’s and women’s events that will be held during the three-day meet that will determine the swimmers that will compete in the 31st Southeast Asian Games and other international meets.

On August 28, the 400m freestyle, 50m breaststroke, 100m butterfly, 200m individual medley, 100m backstroke, and 50m freestyle will take place.

The 200m freestyle, 100m breaststroke, 200m backstroke, 400m individual medley, and 50m butterfly take place on August 29.

On the final day, the 1500m freestyle, 800m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 50m backstroke, 200m butterfly, and 200m breaststroke are set to be played.

This will be the first local swimming event in the country since the 2019 Philippine National Open, also at the NCC Aquatics Center.
