My son SS Prajval got Silver Medal in the finals of ‘4x50 mts Medley Relay – Group III – Boys’ 32nd South Zone Aquatic Championship– 2019. This was the first time Prajval represented in the finals of the South Zone Competitions and he was able to grab a Silver Medal in the same.

The District and the State level competitions were held at ‘B V Gurumurthy Memorial MCH Swimming Pool, Secunderabad, while the finals were held at ‘GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium, Gachibowli, Hyderabad’. These events were conducted by the Telangana Swimming Association. The event was well covered by all the major media outlets.

In the finals Swimmers from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry (Southern States of India) represented. It was nice to see kids really motivated with the Swimming. The final events were held on 3rd/4th/5th of January 2020. We had been to the events on the all three days and it was an enriching and motivating experience for Prajval and us.

It's a tough balancing act between studies, swimming and peer pressures. But it's good to see that the kids are able to balance and prioritize them. Wish him luck for all the future competitions.
