CAPN 2023

The 2023 CAPN is coming to Sydney!

Lycée Condorcet is excited to be hosting the 2023 AEFE Asia-Pacific Swimming Championship right here in Maroubra, Sydney! The championship, better known as the CAPN, will take place between the 13th and the 17th of March.

After the success of the first seven editions in Kuala Lumpur in 2013 and 2016, Shanghai in 2014, 2015, and 2018, Sydney in 2017, and Singapore in 2019, Lycée Condorcet Sydney will host the 2023 CAPN swimming championship, welcoming eight teams of 120 swimmers aged 11 to 16 from all over the region.

We are excited to have Solenne Figues as the Ambassador for the 2023 CAPN in Sydney. Solenne Figues, has won medals at both French, Mediterranean, European and World Swimming Championships in freestyle and relays, and won the Bronze medal at the Athens Olympic Games. This 10th edition of the CAPN marks a significant moment in the sports calendar of the AEFE. It is the first in-person swimming competition that brings together French schools from the Asia-Pacific region since the pandemic. The event is officially kicked off by the Olympic champion and ambassador of the event, who will be present throughout the competition and who shares some advice ahead of the competition: 

“Believe in yourself, be calm, rest as much as you can, and don’t change your habits three weeks before the start of the competition.” – Solenne Figues, CAPN Ambassador, Olympic Champion.
