President of the Ghana Swimming Association (GSA), Mr. Theophilus Wilson Edzie has revealed that they would soon roll out a league involving clubs in Ghana to make swimming more attractive.
Speaking to Yours Truly on the effect of Covid-19 on Ghana Swimming, he said it is both good and bad because they have missed some opportunities like traveling to South Africa for an Olympic qualifier by top swimmer Abeiku Jackson and others.
He expressed that as the event was not honoured the swimmers had to take their time to train very well and hit the qualification mark.
According to Mr. Edzie, the Covid-19 has forced most events in sports to be cancelled or postponed, and all he can say is to thank God as misfortunes can be blessings.
He said plans are on board to get more kids and youth in swimming and they are looking at the universities of Ghana, Legon, KNUST and CapeVas to improve upon their swimming pools or build new ones where the league would be held.
He commended the Bukom International Pool, at the Trust Sports Emporium, that hosted the 7th Africa Zone 2 Championship in March and praised the standard of maintenance.
He also thanked all the companies who supported that competition.
Mr. Edzie urged the young swimmers not to relent on training but keep on training and try to improve upon their times.
