Stingrays Swimming Services supports young swimmer’s SA Games journey
After being mostly self-funded, young Guyanese swimmer Vladimir Woodroffe has been given a timely hand of support as he prepares to represent the country at the upcoming South American Youth Games.
The swimmer is expected to form part of Guyana’s contingent at the Games in Argentina from April 28.
To ensure he is fully outfitted for the journey, Stingrays Swimming Services has donated an undisclosed amount to aid in Woodroffe purchasing personal equipment for the Games.
Tatiana Woodroffe of Stingrays Swimming Services said the company understands the difficulties local athletes face in terms of funding and sponsorship, hence its decision to support the young swimmer.
The company representative wished the swimmer well at the Games, noting that the entity is pleased to offer assistance in making his trip to the South American nation a reality.
Stingrays Swimming Services offers professional learn-to-swim and lifeguard services.
Vladimir Woodroffe has been making ‘waves’ in the pool, as last October he was dubbed ‘champion boy’ of the 13-14 age group at the Barbados International Swim Meet.
