It has come to my attention that a directive emanating from education officials in Mabaruma to Moruca says that the full quota of swimmers from Region 1 cannot be fielded for this year’s Nationals due to shortage of funds!
Moruca has always fielded the athletes for swimming. This shortage of funds is a situation being repeated over the years to the swimmers from our Region. Our medals showing for our participation at Nationals has always been due in large part to the decent showing of our swimmers! In fact we swept the swimming championships in the past!
This is unacceptable and answers are needed.
