How Australia’s Best Swimmers Are Staying Fit During Pandemic

As the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to keep most people stuck at home, swimmers worldwide are trying to find new ways to stay in shape. Many pools are closed, but whether it’s in endless pools, smaller-than-25-meters-long pools, other bodies of water, or completely water-less, there are still plenty of ways that swimmers have been keeping in shape.
