Swimming to Success

09 May 2013

Recently our swimmers have successfully competed in two important events: the CASA combined championships held here at the Academy and the CANA Championships held in Lusaka, Zambia. From the Academy and swimming for Kenya were Mumbi Kiragu, Shaan Vora, Karan Khagram and Urvi Dayal, while Sabrina Kassam represented Tanzania. The CANA championships attracted over 300 swimmers from 11 East, Central and Southern African nations who showcased their considerable talents. Kenya emerged as the overall winners with a tally of 80 medals.

Taking top honours from the Academy was Mumbi Kiragu who won 2 silver medals, while Karan Khagram won a bronze and broke the Kenyan national record for the 200m backstroke and Shaan Vora also won a bronze. Back on home ground, in the recent CASA combined championships, both girls’ and boys’ teams came in first place, giving a first placing overall. Congratulations to all swimmers and coaches involved.
