So..........how did our provincial swimming team do? Well, I am pleased to report - rather well.
Manicaland took a team of 10 swimmers - and we were far and away the smallest team at the National Championships. Here is a photo of our team in the Opening Parade - Manicaland wear yellow and black, while Mashonaland wear yellow. (You can see half of the Mashonaland Team in the background - they didn't all fit into the picture).
Could this small group of 10 country bumpkins really beat a Team of 140 polished swimmers? Here is Manicaland warming up -
I will not comment other than to provide a clipping from the national newspaper 'The Sunday Mail' - (purveyor of truth at all times). I will leave it to them to announce the Manicaland Team's achievements...
Astonishing, isn't it?
Then - as further proof of our giant-slaying abilities, here is a photo of the scoreboard on Day 4.....
Of course..........there are those who would say that we 'doctored' the scoreboard slightly in our favor.
And they may well have a point
But that still makes us Winners!
