The HIS swim team will be leaving to Nairobi, Kenya tomorrow morning. This year the squad is much smaller than ones in the past, with a total of 9 swimmers (3 boys and 6 girls). Although the team is small, the swimmers are optimistic. About their new swimsuits, the boy’s team captain Jonathan Thierfelder jokes “they are fire, and will lead the team to victory”

For some of our swimmers this will be a first ISSEA appearance; for example 7th grader Anna Fuller, Hadja Dansoko, Ashley Makuwa and 9th grader Sochan Rungsung.

 

The team also has a range of different experience in swimming; from Sigvard and Jonathan who have only ever attended one swimming competition, to Ashley, who has been swimming for as long as she can remember, and has inherited nicknames like “feesh/fish” and “water baby”. The team competed in the second Saint John’s Short Course Gala on Sunday 15th January in preparation for ISSEA. The team did well, coming in first places within their heat.

 

Iona Bartosz is the new coach for the HIS Swim team and will be accompanying the team to her first ISSEA. When she asked about how she thinks the team would do at ISSEA she decided to withhold judgment until after the competition.

Warthogs’ World wishes the team the best of luck, and hopes to see them come back with triumphant faces (and maybe some medals?).
