The 2015 World Championships are just two short weeks away, showcasing the best that the world has to offer in the pool.

So sad. Swimming South Africa is doing nothing for true development and support. These swimmers are attending world champs in spite of their federation. How good could swimming in South Africa be if they had a national body that supported them the way in which other top nations support their athletes.

They DO have talent and a lot of SA swimmers would come up through the ranks if their country helped them. Read the post here above (from CONCERNED). The South African government have absolutely no interest in supporting South African swimming. The whole of South Africa (55 million population) has only ONE pool in which international competitions can be held, namely King’s Park Pool in Durban and that is so dated it’s a shame that a country so rich in minerals and with swimming tradition does nothing to support swimming. Bottom line: in South Africa you either fund yourself or you’re done with swimming.

Funny how ASA suddenly has large sums to spend of proper athlete development when it’s no longer buying Mercedes cars at full sticker price and then selling them as surplus to board members for only something like a hundred rand a short time later.
