Uganda name 4 swimmers for Commonwealth Games

Uganda Swimming Federation (USF) has named a team of four to start preparations ahead of the Commonwealth Games slated for New Delhi, India in October. Swimmer of the year Jamila Lunkuse, Ganzi Mugula, captain Sharif Kakooza and Olivia Infield Nakiyingi were selected after the first national time trials held over the weekend at International School of Uganda in Lubowa.

"Right from Rome (FINA World championship) in January, these four have shown consistency in their times in the pool," said Peter Mugisha, the USF Secretary. Lunkuse (14), the youngest on the team, will take part in the freestyle and 50m breaststroke, where she won a Bronze medal at the Africa Zone 4 championship Kenya.

Mugula, 27, will compete in the men's 50m Butterfly and 200m Individual Medley, while Kakooza (23) is lined up for the men's 100m freestyle and breaststroke. Nakiyingi,22, will represent the country in the women's 50m backstroke. The four swimmers will be considered for the forthcoming international events that include World Youth Games in August and the 10th FINA world finals.
