Swimming Championship ended on 27th July and all the teams have left Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Many new friendships were formed during the competition by both swimmers and supporters. Live streaming of the event was a bonus for all the supporters back home. Results were also available on meet mobile. Thank you to Canada for your amazing hospitality. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we set foot on Canadian soil.
