Long Course Gala this weekend
Although various schools are having their yearly athletic meets, the galas are expected to be well attended with some of Namibia’s best swimmers in action.
Zanré Oberholzer, leading Namibian female swimmer according to FINA points, is currently taking her training to another level for her participation in the World Junior Olympic Swimming Games to take place in August. She is the only Namibian Youth swimmer who has qualified with an ‘A’ qualifying time for her effort in the 200m Backstroke. Other strong youth swimmers taking part are Antonia Roth, Gabriella Liebenberg, Nicolai Flemming, Sonja Adelaar, Kiara Schatz and Lushano Lamprecht.
Senior swimmers, Daniela Lindemeier, who recently broke the 100m Breaststroke Open record at the KZN Championship in December 2013, and Quinton Delie, will certainly want to do well before their swims in April at the South African Senior National Competition.
Junior swimmers have a last chance to qualify for the Level 1, 2 and 3 galas in South Africa. Swimmers to watch will be Corne le Roux, Heleni Stergiadis, Zuné Weber, Ju-Ane Oberholzer, Ronan Wantenaar, Rene Viljoen and the sisters Carissa and Tiane Esslinger.
“Please come and support our swimmers at the Bank Windhoek Galas. NASU would also like to thank Bank Windhoek for their continuous sponsorship during the long course swimming season”, said Rentia Meyer, Press Officer of NASU.
