Windsor at the 16th FINA World Championships, Kazan, Russia

We're proud to acknowledge the achievement of Rami Elias, aged 17, a Windsor National/Regional swimmer who is having an incredible summer this year!

Rami has come from our Learn to Swim programme right through to National/Regional Squad and was part of the Sudanese team which participated at the 16th FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia from the 31st July to 8th August 2015. Rami competed in the 200m backstroke and the 200m IM and was pleased to achieve his season's best time. In a recent email Rami said "It was an amazing week staying in the athletes' village and being surrounded by the top swimmers from every country. I learnt lots watching all of the best swimmers in the World race in their events and the atmosphere was awesome".

We send Rami and our Head Coach, Giuseppe Caporaso our best wishes as they travel together to Singapore for Rami to again compete for Sudan in the World Junior Swimming Championships from the 20th August to the 2nd September. He will be competing in the 50m, 100m, 200m backstroke and the 200m IM.
