The team that performed well over the long course at the Kasarani pool in Nairobi in March will not be short of experience when they compete in Mombasa.

Other swimmers travelling include: Samora Byansi, Karimah Katemba, Hannat Nakimuli, Shane Birungi, Swagia Mubiru, Siima Byansi, Hayyan Kisitu, Jordan Ssetumba, Mikka Kigundu, Arthur Tayebwa, Zaabu Kyabayinze and Lionel Agaba

Some of the team members on Saturday paid a courtesy call to their sponsors Riham to get blessings before they left for the annual championship. The team also donated gifts to Harris International Chairman Ahmed Yasser who was in the company of director Ahmed Hassan and public Relations Officer Rachael Luwedde, who received the gifts before promising them more sponsorship.
"It is a pleasure to have sponsored the Dolphins for over five years, our priority is to promote education and sports so that we can create a country with better people," Yasser said.
"It is good to see Dolphins winning outside the country and also continue to encourage those with talent to reach far. Sports helps you stay health and fit that is why we encourage it; most of our products have been supported by the youth the reason we are also giving back and are soon spreading countrywide," Yasser stated.
