Swimmers take to the water as national championships kick off

The Olympia Swimming Pool is a hive of activity since the commencement of the Bank Windhoek National Swimming Championships on Thursday and around 159 local swimmers are taking part in the four day event which will conclude on Sunday, 25 February.

The National Swimming Championships is the highlight of the Bank Windhoek Long Course Gala season, and an event that swimmers look forward to every season.

“This gala also serves as the trials for the South African Junior Championships next month. We can expect brilliant times with a lot of personal bests and hopefully national age group records,” said NASU’s spokesperson, Jurie Badenhorst.

Swimmers started off with the 50-metre swimming pool on Thursday with the last five sessions planned for Sunday in the morning.

The participants are from the following clubs: Aqua Swimming and Fitness Club Dolphins Swimming Club, Lechwe Swimming Club, Marlins, Namib Swim Academy, Oranjemund Sand Sharks and Swakopmund Swimming Club.

Experience has taught us that companies usually want their sport sponsorships published prominently, being the reason for a sports category. It now also carries general sport items but only those with direct Namibian relevance. - Ed.
