Cash injection for Swimming SA


See Eyewitness News

Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula has announced his department will offer financial assistance to cash-strapped Swimming South Africa.

The R2.7 million sponsorship will help the national team’s campaign at the Swimming World Championships in Barcelona.

Mbalula said the sponsorship will make sure South Africa is represented well at the competition and that the funding is a stop-gap measure.

Earlier in 2013, Swimming SA announced it would not have enough cash to sponsor the entire team.
