Swimmers ready to compete this weekend

07 October 2021 | Sports

Four teams comprising 100 swimmers take part in the 2021 Bank Windhoek National Long Course Gala tomorrow (Friday, 8 October) and Saturday at the Olympia Swimming Pool in Windhoek.
Sponsored by Bank Windhoek and hosted by the Namibia Swimming Union (NASU), the swimmers will compete in 627 events.
NASU's Executive Committee Member, Nicky McNamara, said the swimmers have just finished their short course season and are ready for the long course, despite the expected cold pool waters. “The recent cold temperatures we have had will negatively affect the pool temperatures and quite possibly the swimmers, too,” she said. “The first gala of the long course season is usually an adjustment for our swimmers.”
NASU president Aileen Botha said she is delighted at the swimmers’ preparedness and professionalism, especially during various lockdowns experienced. “Our swimmers could continue training and are all excited when a gala can take place,”
