Bank Windhoek’s second LC gala for the year took place at the Olympia swimming pool in Windhoek over the weekend.
Hosted by the Namibia Swimming Union (NASU), the competition between clubs or groups of swimmers, especially the youth, saw 120 contestants from Aqua Swimming Club and Fitness, Dolphins Swimming Club, Marlins Aquatic Club, and Phoenix Swimming Academy, who competed in 758 events.
NASU’s executive committee member, Nicky McNamara, said that the event was successful. “With the sun shining and spirits high, the swimmers took to the water with splashing flare and had many achieving some personal best times,” she said.
With adherence to strict Covid-19 protocols set out by the Namibian Sport Commission (NSC), the Bank Windhoek Long Course Gala is open to all registered clubs and swimmers. The third instalment takes place on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 November 2020, at the Olympia Swimming Pool in Windhoek.
