The Seals League involves more than meets the eye. It encrusts some of the principal international swimming inevitabilities.
The points scoring system employed by the organisers helps keep times of the swimmers and of course the beauty about this is that such times are key to advocate entry to international FINA events.
Seals Swim Club at the end of the day deserves the plaudits of setting the precedent of meeting this important requirement.
Adnan Kabuye , White Reuben, John Kafumbe, Carlton Musenze, Arthur Mwase, Avice Meya, Selina Katumba, Kirabo Namutebi, White Heather and Raya Angemi won all the bragging rights as the third edition of the league ended Saturday at Kampala Parents.
After four meets, the ever improving Kabuye tallied 106 points to emerge overall winner in the boys’ 15 and over category. The Dolphins’ 15 year old starlet had a jaw dropping performance in the final relay of the event to further underline his elite class.
Silverfin Academy’s White Reuben won the 13 and 14 boys category handily after gathering 122 points from the four meets. John Kafumbe of Seals came top in the 11 and 12 boys with 78 points just two above Tendo Kaumi.
Carlton Musenze of Seals stemmed off stiff competition from Yonah Lumonya to clinch the boys 9 and 10 classes on 60 points as Sailfish’s Arthur Mwase collected 33 points to energe winner in the 8 and under.
National captain and Silverfin’s swimmer Avice Meya displayed intestinal fortitude all through, grossing 110 points to win the girls 15 and over category; simply sublime!
Selina Katumba of Silverfin had a total of 141 points to top the nineteen swimmers in the 13 and 14 cvategory. Evergreen Kirabo Namutebi collected 88 points, reining over a cast of 36 swimmers in the 11 and 12 category.
Silverfin’s White Heather finished on163 points to win the 9 and 10 set up as her cub mate Raya Angemi had 34 points in the 8 and under.
In the end, the third edition of the league has seen a significant increase in numbers and clearly there is more to come next year.
