Mr Mickey Gordon, Head: Strategic Sport and Business Development at the University of the Free State (UFS), recently received approval from the National Lottery for an amount to the value of R4 618 058.

This money will be applied for the advancement of swimming at the university. R2,9 million will be used to upgrade the current swimming pool to a national competition bath with heating. The other R1,7 million will be used for research that will shed light on the nutritional habits and incidents that lead to swim injuries.

“The contract is already signed and we are now waiting for the first payment from the Lotto so that we can put the project out on contract,” said Mr Gordon.
