ResultsEdit

SwimmingEdit

A total of 40 swimming events were contested in a long course (50m) pool. Similar to other international competitions, each nation was allowed to have only 2 swimmers advance through to a final in any individual event (additional swimmers could advance into the B final, or empty lanes, put were considered exhibition). In the relay events it was one medal per country. So, for example, if New Zealand 'A' finishes first, Australia 'A' finishes second, New Zealand 'B' finishes third and New Caledonia finishes fourth, New Caledonia would be awarded the bronze medal.
