The second Bank Windhoek Long Course Gala is set to take place today and tomorrow at the Olympia swimming pool in Windhoek. 

With a vast age range of participants between seven to 69 years, the event will see 125 swimmers from four clubs competing. 

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

“It is great to see the youngsters coming up and starting their swimming careers, and that fitness is still a priority at 69,” said the Namibia Swimming Federation’s executive committee member, Nicky McNamara. 

“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.
