Congratulations to our week one winner Chris Brown (VIC).

Congratulations to our week two winner Jacinta Power (VIC).

Congratulations to our week three winner Mary-Anne Gammilonghi (VIC).

Congratulations to our week four winner Alexandra Jaworski (VIC).

Simply buy two tickets to any session of the Athletics for your chance to win.

Aussies love swimming. It’s a fact. And it’s no wonder given the international success Australia has achieved in this sport plus the overwhelming popularity of our swimming athletes.

But we also love the adrenalin rush from being part of a packed stadium with cheering fans; the fierce competition and heart-stopping action; seeing our favourite stars go for glory; and getting behind the underdog and discovering new heroes.

 

You can experience all of this on a much bigger scale at the MCG in March 2006, with tickets starting at $15 each!

For a limited time, Melbourne 2006 is offering you the chance to win a double pass to attend a day at the swimming valued at $630, when you buy 2 or more tickets at any price level to the Athletics at the MCG. There is 1 prize a week to be given away over the next 4 weeks.

 

For your chance to win, all you have to do is purchase two tickets to any session of the Athletics at the MCG before 12 January 2006, and email us in 25 words or less why you’d like to win this Swimming prize. The entry judged most creative each week over a four-week period will win the following prize(s):

Week Starts Ends Prize
One 16 December 2005 11.59pm, 22 December 2005 Two Price level B seats to attend the morning and evening session of the Swimming on 16 March 2006. Value $630.
