Age Group swim meet on June 28


“The Milo Sri Lanka Schools All Island Age Group Aquatic Championships has fuelled the progress and growth of swimming in the country and unearthed a bed of talent,” organizers of the Sri Lanka Schools’ Aquatic Sports Association (SLASA) said recently.

Speaking at a press briefing announcing the annual swim meet, several senior SLASA officials, including its President Y. Yapa, said that the tournament had unveiled high-caliber swimmers such as the Olympic duo – Heshan Unamboowe and Reshika Udugampola.
The 39th edition of the tournament will take place from June 28 to July 1 at the Ananda College swimming pool, and will see action across six age groups (from under 9 to under 19) in both boys and girls categories.

Last year’s boys’ champion, St. Joseph’s College, and girls’ champion, Mahamaya Girls’ College, will once again be strong contenders for the title.
