Tanzania to host swimming course
Tanzania Swimming Association (TSA) secretary general Noel Kiunsi said the course has been sanctioned by the game’s world governing body FINA.
He said University of Dar es Salaam is the venue of the event as FINA has imposed the initiative aimed at empowering swimming officials from African countries with modern tactical and technical know-how of the sport.
He said 18 officials from different swimming clubs in the country have confirmed to attend the course and named Nigerian Olugbenga Lawal as one of the lecturers.
The TSA official expressed his delight for the course saying it will help to develop and improve swimming in the country. He urged swimming officials who have not confirmed to beat the June 6 deadline if they have the intention.
He also named other objectives of the course as to increase number of officials, enhance quality interpretation and application of swimming rules.
The course will be used as an instrument to develop and promote swimming worldwide.
This is the third course for year to be organised by FINA for Tanzania after the first one held under FINA instructor German Gerd Nottelmann at Tanganyika International School (ITS) and another in Zanzibar.
