A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that over six million Australians participated in swimming either regularly or occasionally in the last three months, making it the nation’s leading sport. Swimming is one of the rare Australian sporting pursuits where more women (3.45 million) participate than men (2.58 million). Analysis using Roy Morgan’s Helix Personas consumer profiling tools shows that more than a third of Metrotechs (34.6%), Aussie Achievers (33.5%) and Leading Lifestyles (33.4%) participate in swimming. Combined together more than half of all Australian swimmers come from one of these three communities. Meanwhile, analysis of the broad range of sports being contested at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games shows that more than 9.3 million Australians (46.4%) played Commonwealth Games sports regularly or occasionally in 2017.
