Swimmers storm their way to more medals for Team SA


Day two of the swimming competition at the African Union Region 5 Games in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe on Thursday saw South African athletes display a great performance just as they did  the previous day, writes Jessica Choga.
That was despite the inclement and stormy weather at the  outdoor swimming arena – the Bulawayo City Pool.
The rain did not impede Team SA’s swimming’ performance. Like Wednesday, they continued to rise and sing the national anthem as the athletes scooped most of the gold medals.
Team Manager of the swimming team, Bianca Marais commented, ‘Today we obtained great results from Team SA in some challenging weather. It was an awesome team spirit from all swimmers and well done to them.
‘We obtained a total of 12 medals tonight, six gold, four silver and two bronze. Amongst that were four championship records.’
