The Vorgee Million Metre Awards acknowledge progress from the “learn to swim” beginner to the distance swimmer. These awards are intended to stimulate members to strive for greater fitness and are open to all registered members of Masters Swimming Australia.
The Million Metre Awards were established in 2001 for one, three, and ten million metres. In 2004, they were expanded to include five and seven million metres. In 2007, the two million metre award was added. In 2008, the Vorgee Award was expanded to recognise swimmers who attain fifteen million metres and above.
Upon successful completion of 1 million, 2 million, 3 million, 5 million, 7 million, and 10 million metres, members are awarded by Masters Swimming Australia.
Manual Million Metres recording cards are available from your coaches at training or during Endurance swim sessions. You can also use the Million Metres Recording Spreadsheet version to record your progress. Once your distances are completed, download and complete the application form, and submit to your MSA Branch office. Once all details are verified, the award will be processed at the National Office and sent to the Branch to arrange the presentation.
