The University of Ghana Sports Directorate pool was a center of attraction on Saturday as the 2019 edition of the LEGON SWIM MEET ended in grand style.
Six swimming teams across the country assembled for glory in the breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle and the Butterfly events for both boys and the girls.
Vice president for the Legon Swim club, Madam Nicholina Naa Yeye, speaking to the media, stated that the club was looking to do something innovative and different from last year’s competition.
She mentioned that she was excited to see the event end within the apportioned time.
“Last year after the event, we went to the drawing board to rectify certain mistakes, we did 90 events last year but we made it 68 this year, I think we have improved with the time”
Madam Nicholina also revealed that instead of focusing on football as usually is the case, swimming should be looked at as it holds a lot of benefits.
“Swimming help to develop the entire psyche it has helped me and my kids so we should over concentrate on football” .
Ghanaian swimming champion Abeiku Jackson also featured in the competition as he inspired the GH Dolphins to a gold finish in the relay event of the men’s 50m freestyle.
The competing teams were the African Sharks, Torpedo-LA, Legon Sharks, Marlins, Blue fins and the GH Dolphins. The competition was organized by the Legon Sharks and has been in existence since 2016.
