Swimmer Peter Wetzlar confident of chances

By ZBC Reporter

SWIMMER Peter Wetzlar is ready to challenge the best in the world when he takes to the pool this Tuesday at the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The 24 year old swimmer who is based in the United States of America takes to the Tokyo Aquatics centre swimming pool in 100m freestyle this Tuesday.

With fellow swimmer Donata Katai having made the country proud with her personal best time, Wetzlar who was also at Sharks Swimming Club before he earned an Olympic scholarship, is hoping to continue the trend.

Representing my country at the Olympics is the proudest moment in my life and i have been working on this for a long time, believe swimming without fans is going to be difficult but it also puts us t the same level,he said.

Wetzlar is a former African junior champion and set his personal best time at the World Championships in 2019.

Meanwhile, sprinter Ngoni Makusha conducted his first training session on the track this Monday after arriving in Tokyo over the weekend.

Makusha is in now under the watchful eye of his long time trainer David Tinago.

The overall target is the semis but we are taking it one step at a time, we are working on executing our plans once that is done they we can achieve out targets or now we want to get to the first round,said Tinago.

Makusha still has three more training days before the sprint events on Friday.
