Lekki British School hosted Week 2 of the Dolphin Swimming League as the initiative continues to garner momentum with large turnout of stakeholders craving the support of corporate organisations and well meaning individuals to sustain the league.


The Lagos team and five other schools competed for honours in the inaugural edition of the developmental championships designed to unearth new talents and improve the technical know how of coaches.

A total of 59 events were decided on the day with participants putting in their best in the pool with the hope to get better as the league progresses.

Although, some of the participants represented their schools in an international competition – The World School Games in Dubai, United Arab Emirates last month, the dream of the organisers is to produce medal hopeful for swimming at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

Head of  Lekki British School,  Ashish Gill said apart from giving participants opportunity to develop talent, active participation in sports will keep the children away from negative influences and  help them to build functional skills that will be useful in the future.

“It is a brilliant concept by Dynaspro Sports. I congratulate them for bringing the swimming league and getting a lot of international schools and the Lagos state team to compete. It is a great opportunity for children to meet, participate and bring out their real talent in the course of the competition. Of course, sports bring out the real character in the field, sportsmanship, leadership qualities, accepting victory in humility and accepting defeat in a situation that you can do better next time. These are some of the values that are not just building blocks for now but also for the future as well” Gill said.
