SWIMMERS from seven different clubs around Harare had an opportunity to battle it out in the pool at the Harare Provincial Swimming Gala held this Sunday.

The swimming tournament gave an opportunity to swimmers from the tender age of 9 to showcase their abilities against their provincial counterparts.

With the competition being the 3rd seeded tournament this year, it was time to get back in the pool for the swimmers who have a dream to make a mark on the global scene.

“This is our third-seeded gala and my times have been improving so hopefully they keep on improving until the next big thing that’s coming,” said a swimmer, Vhenekai Dhemba.

Matida Musere from Vikings Swimming Club added, “Doing these seeded galas helps me track my times to prepare for the games in Mauritius. So, these games will help me see where I need to improve and what I need to do to improve my strokes.”

“We’re able to get back into racing, we’ve been off for around six weeks during winter. So, we’re getting back into that feeling of racing which will obviously be very useful for the Africa Championships,” said swimmer, Susie Worsfold.

In the end, Spartans amassed 651 points to finish top on the overall leaderboards having dominated in both the girls and boys sections, while Vikings settled for 2nd and Dorado 3rd position.

After a beautiful day at Les Brown swimming pool, attention has shifted to Mutare where Zimbabwe’s Swimming Association will take the sport to Manicaland for the National Sprint gala to be held at the Mutare City Pool on 13-14th October 2023.
