Sierra Leone Sports: Swimmers finally in the pool

Swimmers

The Secretary General of Sierra Leone Swimming, Diving and Water Polo Association, Mohamed Turay, said after a long break they are now using the swimming pool at the Siaka Stevens Stadium to train ahead of the Commonwealth Games slated for next month.
He said since they started training they have seen a positive impact because they know now that they can train in their own pitch come up with an admirable performance and representation of the country.
He also revealed that training starts at 8:00 a.m. and it ends at 1:00 p.m. They are training 8 hours from Monday to Saturday and they are using the coach training schedule for all the swimmers.
And he said before the training they are using 30 minutes loosening up in the morning and evening before training.
According to the head coach, Bobson Mansaray, “If you can do swimming workouts for 25 meters or 25 yard lengths of a pool, then you can use these swimming workouts to build up to a workout that totals 500 meters or 500 yards. It does not matter what stroke you do for these swim workout. It does not matter how fast or how slow you swim these workouts.” He told them that the sole goal is to increase the amount of swimming you do within one workout. Within one swim workout, there are 25s, the 50s, 75s, and – at the end of the plan – a 100.
A 25 = 25 meters or yards. You push off of one wall of the pool and swim to the other end, assuming that the pool is 25 meters or yards long. If it is a longer pool, then you will stop in the middle of the pool and start your next swim effort from the middle.
A 50 = 50 meters or yards. Push off of one wall of the pool, swim to the other end, turn around and swim back to where you started (assuming that the pool is 25 meters or yards long). If the pool is 50 meters long, then you swim from one wall to the other without stopping.
If the pool is 50 meters long, then you swim from one wall to the other without stopping, turn around and swim half way back.
A 100 = 100 meters or yards. Push off of one wall of the pool, swim to the other end, turn around and swim back to where you started, push off that wall and swim to the other end, turn around, push off, and swim to where you started (assuming that the pool is 25 meters or yards long).
If the pool is 50 meters long, then you swim from one wall to the other without stopping, turn around and swim back to where you started.
One of the athletes that will be making the trip Ishmael Koroma aka Stone Cole said he is looking to such competition and he is prepared to make serious impact during the competition that why am trying very during the training.
