Few days after returning from the Africa Junior Swimming Championship in Egypt, two of the key swimmers who made it to the finals of the competition have shared their experience with www.sportsnetghana.com.
Master Kow Asafua Jackson, captain of Team Ghana, said the competition provided them the opportunity to gain international experience.
Asafua Jackson, who qualified for the finals of the competition but failed to win a medal, said, they have gathered enough experience and mental toughness as individuals and as a team.
According to the Soul Clinic International School student, “the trip has helped us to work on our mental toughness and it’s a sign of greater things to come as we look forward to the Olympics.
Maayaa A. Ayawere, a student of the British International School, who was the only female in the team to make it to the 50 meters breaststroke, said it was a learning process for the entire team.
“Over all I placed 6th and the competition was exciting with all the challenges that came our way.
“It is a learning process, as we keep focused on the future and the Olympic games”.
