Sierra Leone Sports: Swimmers Association meets parents and supporters

Swimmers and Parents in the pool

The Secretary General of Sierra Leone Swimming, Water Polo and Diving Association, Mohamed Turay, said they want the parents to know that their children are part of the association and to give them the schedule so they will know when they are coming to training and when they are expected to be back home. The Association held a meeting over the weekend. He also revealed all of the swimmers are going to school, which they are very happy for. The Association supports education and any student swimmer who neglects their school will be reprimanded.   The Technical Director, Victor Carew, said every swimmer that represents the country are selected by their performance not by sentiments that is why he is now appealing to the parents to tell your children to train very hard so that they will be part of the swimmers delegation to international competitions. He also stated that they are having training in China and each parent should be ready to make passports for their children because the association do not make passport for athletes. And they should also be ready to also pay the medical bill at the Chinese Jui Hospital. One of the parents at the meeting, Manki Kamara, said this was a good meeting and she will try to monitor her children before and after training.
