Swimming Gala set for the gateway to the north
The Bank Windhoek Long Course gala is back and this time will see swimmers from various swimming clubs countrywide, gathering in Tsumeb this weekend to compete in the second race of the gala.
The young swimmers will compete in the following events:400m Freestyle, 200m Breaststroke, 100m Backstroke, 100m Freestyle, 200m Butterfly,1500m Freestyle, 50m Butterfly, 50m Breaststroke, 50m Freestyle, 100m Breaststroke and the 400m Individual Medley.
The first Bank Windhoek Long Course Gala for the 2016/2017 swimming campaign was held at the Olympia Swimming Pool in October. This is the fourth consecutive year that Bank Windhoek is sponsoring the long course galas for an extended season.
The swimmers will also enjoy traveling and competing in pools in which they do not regularly compete and this will create a sense of excitement, especially with the younger swimmers, who have not yet gone on tours, or have not otherwise traveled for sporting events.
Some swimmers and their parents will be staying at the Kupferquelle Resort, where the pool is also located, and as past experience has shown, a relaxed and festive atmosphere accompanies the event.
