Over 30 swimmers will walk away with prizes as the Seals League Meet climaxes today at Kampala Parents School.
The league, now in its third edition started in February, with one round held in each quarter of the year, and has attracted about 300 swimmers.
This final round will be dominated by short races, which most swimmers relish, and if all main protagonists turn up then the standings can only get more interesting. Patrick Rukundo leads the 15 and over boys with 78 points but that is just five more Adnan Kabuye, who advanced to this category midway through the competition after turning 15 in September.
Avice Meya has had a busy year and continues to dominate the girls in the senior age group with 91 points. Anthea Mudanye is a distant second with 65 but the lack of competition for these two points to the struggles stakeholders meet in keeping girls in the sport.
The 13-14 years age group is one to watch as Samora Lumonya and Christopher Musenze dominate the boys with 56 points. Ben Kaganda and Darren Ssamula are not far off with 43 and 39 respectively despite having missed the penultimate round.
For the girls, Selina Katumba has a comfortable lead with 113 points but will be challenged in today’s races when she comes up against Daya Yalonda Mpeera (96), who turned 13 in August, Silverfin teammate Mercedes Mwebeiha, Ssinzi Nabatanzi, Alexis Kituuka and Zara Nsubuga.
Meanwhile Ruben White, 12, and his sister Heather, 10, who took the third round by storm dominate the 11-12 boys and 9-10 girls respectively.
