Swimming Australia cancels 2012 Canberra Grand Prix due to whooping-cough

Swimming Australia has canceled its last warmup meet before the London Olympics after a water polo coach and two players who train at the venue were diagnosed with whooping-cough. Swimming Australia Head Coach Leigh Nugent said the decision to cancel the camp is purely a precaution.

“We have spoken with the AIS and, whilst we are comfortable with the procedures they have put in place, we have decided to take this precaution.”
