His Country Calls!
Aliasger, a MV (Year 10) Swimming Scholar and full time boarder has recently been selected to represent Tanzania at the Central and North African (CANA) games to be held in Uganda in April.
This is testament to both the training that Ali has put in since his arrival at Saint Felix in October 2012 and to our elite training programme. Ali’s 100m freestyle time has dropped a massive 13 seconds since he has been training under the guidance of Sue Purchase our Director of Swimming.
‘It is a great privilege to be selected to represent my country,’ Ali said upon hearing of his selection, ‘I’m really excited about the competition and I know the real hard work has to start now’.
Ali will be travelling back to Tanzania for an extended February Half Term as he has been selected to swim at the Tanzanian National Trials in the hope of qualifying for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this year and also for the Youth Olympics to be held in Beijing this summer.
Sue Purchase said,
‘The school, the club and Ali’s coaching staff are very proud of his achievements. Ali has shown great dedication and determination at training and competition and is now being rewarded for his efforts.’
Everyone at Saint Felix would like to wish Ali congratulations and good luck. We look forward to hearing all about it upon his return to school later this term.
