The organizers were
very pleased with the smooth flow of the event as they were
putting their new investment, The Dolphin Wireless Stopwatch
System to the test.
The new system
significantly reduces the amount of effort required to run a
meet and manage data.
The system has
improved accuracy compared to manual swimming stopwatches by
transferring all timed data wirelessly to meet manager.
The committee also
initiated posting of results on meet mobile allowing parents,
spectators, coaches or any interested party to have immediate
results as and when received.
For CASA, the
weekend was a big leap towards improving the sport at the coast
and it was a truly successful event with its spectators
appreciating the efforts of its organizers.
The organizers would
also like to thank Mr. Anthony Murithi, a swimming coach from
Nairobi for coming down to assist CASA Technical secretary to
run the system smoothly for the first time.
The Aga Khan Academy Boys team took first position; Bandari Swim
Club took second place and the third position was won by Nyali
