The future is bright, and we’re excited to see these aspiring athletes become the next generation of champions.Let’s continue to push the boundaries, inspire greatness, and make waves for grassroots swimming in Kenya and beyond..” he said.

“The gala was unique since it attracted kids from public schools who have expressed commitment to train hard and excel in swimming just like swimmers from well established international Schools which have been dominating Swimming” he added.

The event was a build-up to the upcoming swimming gala dubbed “BUSH GALA” set for July this year in an exercise expected to bring together various swimmers from both primary and secondary schools in a bid to promote development of the sport in Kiambu County.

According to organisers led by Kenya Swimming Federation (KSF) Kiambu Executive Committee member Joseph Ndung’u,the gala will act as a forum of spotting talents and subsequently have them properly nurtured through structures being put in place by the Mt Kenya stakeholders of the game.
