A bit of history about Namibians recreation environment from 2014….
The 5th edition of the Bank Windhoek Long Course Swimming Gala takes place at the Olympia municipal swimming pool in Windhoek on Friday at 15h00.
The two-day swimming gala will be the last long course event of the year before the start of the short course gala season set for the end of May. A total of 71 swimmers will be action when the competition gets underway in earnest on Friday and Saturday with 572 splashes ahead of them. In total there will be 81 heats.
“We are looking forward to some great action from our senior swimmers as well as our juniors. Some have just returned from Johannesburg, South Africa where they took part in the South African Level 2 championships,” said Angelika Diekmann, General Secretary of the Namibia Swimming Union (NASU).
Senior swimmers Daniela Lindemeier, Nicolai Flemming, Lushano Lamprecht, Jörn Diekmann, Antonia Roth, Zanre Oberholzer and Sonja Adelaar will use this weekend’s gala as preparation for their participation in the South African Senior National Championships, which takes place in Durban, South Africa from April 7 – 12 2014.
“Swimmers will have to brave the cold water and we wish them the best of luck in their efforts to always improve. We would also like to wish the NASU Level 1 team the best of luck on their tour to Germiston, South Africa, this weekend,” added Diekmann.
