ZIMBABWE’S swimming icon Kirsty Coventry yesterday announced her plans to open a swimming academy in the country.
KIRSTY Coventry put on a commendable display on her return to competitive swimming reaching two individual finals at the Austin Arena Pro-Swim Series meet which ended on Saturday at the University of Texas in the United States.
IT is now close to two years since Kirsty Coventry was last involved in competitive swimming, but the four-time Olympian feels her career is still far from being over.
ZIMBABWEAN sport received a major vote of confidence with a record representation by local administrators and former athletes on the various commissions of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced yesterday.
DEJECTION and disillusionment could be mere words safely tucked in the dictionary, but they suitably sum up Olympics swimming medalist Kirsty Coventry’s feelings at the direction local sport has taken.
“I will be competing at Rio2016 Olympics,” that’s the bold statement from Zimbabwe swimming icon Kirsty Coventry.
