Future Energy a newcomer in the fishing industry since 2012, has supported some of these endeavours during the period of operation namely the Gobabis project School, SME development initiatives in Gobabis, and the Future Energy Track and Field Athletics in Keetmanshoop.
During the annual handover that took place in early July, Sophia Links and Mignon du Preez members of Future Energy said that it is through these endeavours that they found it fitting to announce the silver lining of the Paralympics swimmer, Gideon Nasilowski who competed in Glasgow Scotland at IPC World Championship from 13 – 19 July.
Nasilowski competed in the 200m freestyle, 50 m freestyle and 50m breaststroke during the world champs but unfortunately did not win anything.
“His never say die attitude has finally secured him to bring back something for his country, initially he didn’t bring home anything he came last in all events although he was disappointed about his performance he stayed upbeat and happy that he was able to represent his country at this high level, now a couple of weeks later IPC confirmed that his last event the 50m breaststroke is recognized as an African record,” Links said.
According to Future Energy, Gideon has accomplished so much in such a short time he competed with the best in the World and made the country proud. It is for this reason, Future Energy decided to reward him with N$3000 to celebrate his victory. Gideon also received a pair of new gym sneakers and tracksuit. Despite Gideon lagging behind his qualifying time for the Paralympic games in Rio next year, the company is confident that he will still make it.
During the handover, Future Energy thanked Gideon for accepting their small contribution and wished him well in his future endeavours.
