National swimmers such as Quah Ting Wen and Luke Tan are looking to book a ticket at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics.
After a 11-month hiatus, the Singapore Swimming Association (SSA) returned to competition mode with the Singapore National Olympic Qualifiers 2020 on Thursday (Dec 3).
Held at the OCBC Aquatic Centre, the meet gives local swimmers the chance to race and meet the Olympic qualifying times for the Tokyo Olympics next year.
The likes of national swimmers Quah Ting Wen, Jamie Koo and Luke Tan are on show in the closed door event, which runs until Sunday (Dec 6).
About 300 participants were involved and they were required to wear a mask at all times except when competing. This is on top of adhering to safe management measures in place.
Technical officials were meanwhile seated in a dedicated section in the stands.
Other measures include temperature checks before entry, staggered timings of entry for athletes as well as the limited use of shower facilities at the venue.
The qualifiers are ongoing and you can catch the action on SSA’s Facebook page, with the heats and finals streamed live daily at 8.15am and 5.30pm respectively.
