125 swimmers from four clubs to compete in this weekend’s gala

The second Bank Windhoek Long Course Gala will take place at the Olympia Swimming Pool in Windhoek on Friday, 5 until Saturday, 6 November.

With a vast age range of participants between seven to 69 years, the event will see 125 swimmers from four clubs compete in this upcoming weekend’s gala.

The clubs involved are Aqua Swimming and Fitness, Dolphins Swimming Club, Marlins Aquatic Club, and Phoenix Swimming Academy.

“It is great to see the youngsters coming up, starting their swimming careers, and that fitness is still a priority at 69,” said the Namibia Swimming Federation’s (NASFED) Executive Committee Member, Nicky McNamara.

The swimming gathering is sponsored by Bank Windhoek and hosted by NASFED. “We are excited about the gala; our swimmers have been training hard. The water temperatures are still on the chillier side. However, our swimmers are acclimating to the changes from the indoor pool to outdoor well and should be able to give us their best,” said McNamara.

The Economist does not have a dedicated sport reporter. This designation is used for several contributors who want their sport stories in the Economist. 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.
