Guyanese trio to attend Puerto Rico Swim Meet
Guyanese swimmers Andrew Fowler, Leon Seaton Jr. and Aleka Persaud are expected to depart for Puerto Rico to attend a UANA Swimming Meet, which runs from May 20-24.
According to the President of the Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA), Dwayne Scott, Fowler’s presence is to further prepare him for the Olympic Games in Tokyo this July.
Fowler, along with Jamila Sanmoogan, will be Guyana’s representatives at the Games after earning a spot due to the Universality selection.
The 25-year-old Fowler recently attended a swim meet in Florida, and will be swimming the 100M freestyle at the Olympics, while Sanmoogan, who will be on her second consecutive Olympic Games, will swim the 50m Freestyle.
Scott said that Sanmoogan will “continue to work at home.”
Meanwhile, 16-year-old Seaton Jr. and Persaud will attend for developmental purposes since the GASA president wants swimmers to qualify for the Games in the future.
The Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) will be funding the meals, transportation and accommodation for Fowler after his ticket was funded by FINA.
