Star swimmer called up to national squad

Years of hard work and dedication, finally paid off for Matthew Bowers when he earned a call up to the senior national mens swimming team that will take part in the All Africa Championships, in Algeria, later this year.

Athlete Matthew Bowers, 23, describes himself as a real waterbaby. He talks about his selection to the senior men’s national squad set to compete at the All Africa Championships, in Algeria.

His selection to the national side follows nearly a year spent out of the water, due to a major shoulder operation he had in March 2017.
