Results for this event will be posted at athleteswithoutlimits.org/results

The 2017 Athletes Without Limits (AWL) Long Course and Open Water Swimming National Championships is the first-ever opportunity for all swimmers with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability (IDD) to compete against their peers. The event will host swimmers in three classes:

1.  Intellectual Disability (S14)
2. Down Syndrome
3. Autism + (for those with Autism who do not meet the S14 eligibility criteria)

The meet is also the selection event for swimmers in the above classes wishing to compete at the November 2017 Inas World Swimming Championships in Mexico.

In addition to a full pool meet, this event offers swimmers the opportunity to compete in the first-ever US open water national championships (1k and 3k). This is an optional event for those swimmers capable of and interested in open water swimming. For those not competing in the open water event, Saturday is a free day to enjoy the Atlanta area.
