Swimming has been one of the most successful sports in Australia's proud history, particularly at the Olympic Games. Athletes like Dawn Fraser, Kieren Perkins, Susie O'Neill and Ian Thorpe became household names due to their exploits in the pool.
It is not always easy to catch the action up and down the black line year on year. But there are at least options once the national swimming trials, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games roll around.
This is how you can watch the modern costumes and swimming caps as they cut through the water.
The Olympics Games in 2021 – originally planned for 2020 until the pandemic hit – are being broadcast on Channel 7 in Australia and the swimming is sure to be hugely popular once more. You can also catch some critical action in the pool on Amazon Prime Video.
Channel 7 will be showing the Olympics this year across its three channels, 7, 7TWO and 7mate. The free-to-air network will also be streaming the action on its website and app. As has been the case in the past, the Games rights-holder isn't broadcasting the pre-Olympics trials.
In February 2021, Swimming Australia signed a two-year deal with Amazon Prime for the exclusive rights to the all-important national swimming trials. Starting with the 12–17 June trials in Adelaide for this year's Olympics and Paralympics, the action will be no extra cost to Prime subscribers.
The deal takes in qualifying for the 2022 World Swimming Championships as well as the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in the same year. There will also be some events available to stream on Swimming Australia's own platform, Swim TV.
The Australian trials aren't Amazon Prime's only commitment to swimming. On top of that live action, the platform has also produced a four-part documentary on Australian swimming titled Head Above Water.
Thorpe, Australia's most decorated Olympian, will feature in one of the episodes. Bronte Campbell and Kyle Chalmers are also part of the series, along with pop singer turned swimming hopeful Cody Simpson, a former junior champion in the pool.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
