Malawi Aquatic Union (MAU) has expressed satisfaction with the tremendous improvements junior swimmers have displayed when tasked to represent the country at international competitions.
The sentiments were shared by MAU Spokesperson, Beatrice Makwenda following the stint nine swimmers had at the recent 2023 African Swimming Confederation (CANA) Zone IV Championship, in Luanda, Angola.
Makwenda hailed 14 year-old Luka Smith who carted home two gold medals in the 50 metres and 100 metres freestyle events while six new Malawian national records were broken during the championship.
Makwenda was grateful that the 2023/2024 national budget included funds for the completion of the Aquatic Complex but highlighted that the Ministry of Sports is better placed to provide the timeline for the completion.
Meanwhile Coach of the Swimmers, Sharon Malrose said it was an honor to coach the young swimmers who are relatively new to the competition setting at international level as they showed potential besides challenges faced in preparations.
