Orange's LiveBetter swimming squad has been crowned the 2019 champions at a recent all abilities swimming carnival. More than 40 athletes were sent to Parkes to compete against rivals from all over Western NSW, including Dubbo, Cowra, Bathurst and Forbes. 

Orange's team came out on top with 10 first place results across a variety of events such as freestyle, breaststroke, relay and novelty races. The annual event is extremely popular throughout the region, and is thoroughly enjoyed by participants.

LiveBetter is an organisation that delivers aged, carer, clinical and disability supports across regional NSW and QLD. Their annual swimming carnival is one of many initiatives they run to improve networking opportunities for people with disability in Western NSW.
