2012 Georgia Grand Prix
2012 marked the second year of the Georgia Championship Series. The Series consists of one short course yards meet, one long course meet, one short course meters meet and a choice of two open water swim. In 2012, the Rainbow Trout Spring meet opened the Series, with the Classic City Long Course meet coming next. We also added the Eric Chanteau Swim For You Life Challenge as an extra open water event, since the Georgia State Games was not sanctioned in 2012. We then ended the year with the St. Nick’s meet. The age group winners are:
