The overall individual winners in different age categories walked away with DStv memorabilia for their outstanding performance.
Speaking at the handover ceremony Tina Wamala, PR Manager MultiChoice Uganda said “These athletes outdid themselves at the recent gala and we felt we could further motivate them to continue challenging their fellow competitors by setting the bar high which will ultimately elevate swimming as a sport”.
Amongst the recipients of the prizes were Tendo Kaumi (11), Daya Yolanda (12), John Kafumbe (10), Yonah Lumonya (9), Hannah Kyanda (10, Swabaiah Mubiru (11), Mathew Mwase (9), Manzi Musoke (9), Heather White (10), Ruben White (12).
Dr Donald Rukare, President of the USF stated ‘We are extremely proud of the strides these athletes have made in improving their skills by training hard and always coming out tops in the different heat races. We are grateful to our partners DStv for recognising them even more and encouraging their protégés to work hard so that they too can get rewarded in the future’
The next DStv USF gala is slated for October when the clubs compete in the Independence Gala.
