In their match against Tanzania, the Namibians led the first quarter 8-4. The second quarter saw the Tanzanians regaining their confidence and this resulted in them taking the lead at halftime with a score of 13-17. At the end of the third quarter both teams were tied at 23 points each.
Christine Briedenhann and Micaela Cloete last weekend qualified for the 10th World Short Course Swimming Championships that are due to be held in Dubai from 15 to 19 December.
This happened at the Namibia Swimming Union (NASU) Gala that took place at the Namibia Swimming Academy (NSA) pool from 3 to 4 September.
Briedenhann (14) set four new Namibian records for the 13 and 14 age group in 100m backstroke with a time of 1:09,88, the 50m butterfly with a time of 29:84, 100m freestyle with a time of 58:87 and the 50m freestyle with a time of 26,93.
The Namibia Premier League (NPL) unveiled their new logo to the public on Tuesday evening in Windhoek.
The NPL Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Haikali said that the previous logo did not have anything on it that would stick in the minds of people and that is what necessitated the change of logo.
“We need to make sure that NPL stands on its own. We are NPL and not NFA (Namibia Football Association). We need to have an image that lasts in the minds of the people,” Haikali said.
