The third Bank Windhoek long course gala for the 2016/2017 swimming season was recently held at the 50m Olympia Swimming Pool in Windhoek.
The event brought the curtain down on a very successful long course swimming calendar this year, made possible by the continued support of principle sponsors Bank Windhoek.
A total of 108 swimmers took part in the event, representing four clubs: Aqua Swimming and Fitness Club (20 swimmers), Dolphins Swimming Club (75 swimmers), Marlins Swimming Club (2 swimmers) and Namib Swim Academia (11 swimmers).

Fourth long course gala (27-28 January)
Pupkewitz Gala (10-11 February)
