April 24, 2013

back start 14

Four more countries have arrived for the Confederation of Aquatics Nations Association (CANA) Zone Three and Four Championship, which starts tomorrow, in Lusaka, while Mozambique has pulled out of the gala, due to financial constraints.

Zambia Amateur Swimming Union (ZASU) president David Thompson named the teams that arrived yesterday as Angola, Malawi, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

Angola is expected to enter 24 swimmers with Uganda having 25 while Malawi and Zimbabwe are expected to enter 30 and 40 swimmers respectively. Team Kenya was the first to arrive with 35 swimmers.

Thompson said the rest of the teams that include; Botswana, Tanzania, Madagascar, Namibia, and South Africa are expected in the country today.

On Mozambique, Thompson said the team will not make it because they received funding late.
He said it was unfortunate that Mozambique, who hosted last year’s championship, were unable to make it to this year’s gala.

Thompson said all was set for the four-day gala, at the 90 Days Legacy Swimming Pool.
He said the championship is expected to be competitive, as it will be used as a qualifier for the 2013 Barcelona World Championship, in August
