Swimmers disappoint

Both the men's and women's swimming teams of Mora faced disappointment when they were knocked to 5th place (in men's women's and all round) at the inter-university Swimming meet held at the University of Peradeniya on the the 27th of September.

With only a few swimmers retained from last year's team Mora was looking to make up with a large crew of freshers to bring home the points. Things how ever did not go to plan with only 2 swimmers being placed within the first 3 at their respective events. Even the captain and SLUSA colours man Janith Amerasinghe fell short in his pet events -the 50m & 100m Breaststroke- becoming second in both events after having won both of them in the last 2 years. There was some promise from some of the freshers who scrambled a few points for Mora but overall it was a disappointing performance from the whole team.

The swimming team will look to work hard and rectify all mistakes before the Sri Lanka University Games next year.

Mora come on top - But not without any worries

Mora would only have been glad at the end of the day that the meet on the 13th with the University of Sabaragamuwa was only a friendly meet and did not call the calculation of points for the events.

Sabaragamuwa capitalised on 4 of their swimmers who would have threatened to take the meet away from Mora had the points been calculated. Of the 16 events Mora bagged first place only in 6, but managed to make up for it with 12 second and 10 third places. At the end of the day it was some gritty performance from the rest of the team to fill in the second and third places that allowed Mora to walk out chins up as the ‘stars’ and the hopefuls failed to produce the results.

The fact that the swimming team will be depending on some rear guard action from their freshers was not to be unexpected as only 2 colours men are retained from last year’s team. How ever how effective this strategy will be at the inter-university is to be seen on the 27th.
