More than 10 African countries are set to converge at Les Brown Pool in Harare this weekend as the African Swimming Confederation (CANA) Championships take centre stage.
14 African countries including Zimbabwe will be competing virtually in a swimming gala that will see the country’s top swimmers taking to the pool in the two day championship.
Over 100 swimmers will converge in the capital all for a chance to be Africa’s best.
Other countries who haven’t made the journey to Zimbabwe due to COVID-19 related travel complications will participate virtually in their countries with the results being tallied to find a winner.
Elsewhere, professional boxing makes a welcome return with the Rise of Champions tournament at Borrowdale Race course this Saturday.
The main bout will be a middle weight clash between Freeman Mabvongwe and Liberty Muwani over six rounds.
The grudge match is definitely not one to miss especially after the controversy of their first fight in which Muwani was declared winner on points, a decision which was hotly disputed by Mabvongwe who is affectionately known as Bvongwez.
Another middle weight clash between Enock Musambudzi and Lazarus Sithole promises to be a thriller with more of the same expected in the lightweight clash between Aliyah Phiri and Ndodana Moyo.
While pugilists will be trading leather in Borrowdale, the slam and dunk action returns with Harare Basketball Association hosting a preseason tournament that will see over 20 of the best male and female teams competing for honours.
The tournament looks more like a dress rehearsal of the national championships, with Richwood Sports Club and City Sports centre promising to be a hive of activity this weekend. Foxes and Hornets will want to claim early bragging rights in the men’s competition, while Lakers and Hornets will renew their rivalry in the ladies category
