Swimmers from the Boroko Club in Port Moresby are currently preparing for this year’s Theodist National Swimming Championship.
Agnew said the membership of the club has increased rapidly and with only a month away to the nationals, training for the swimmers will be a priority, prior to the events in September.
Swimmers both male and female will take part in junior, intermediate and open; participating in their respective strokes.
Despite the increase in membership this year, more swimmers, especially the young children who are interested in the code, are encouraged to enroll and become part of the swimming club, as the club has trained coaches to conduct the training.
