ALTHOUGH a few swimmers have already been shortlisted, the Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) is still deciding on the 12-member team who will represent Guyana in this year’s Inter-Guiana ‘Goodwill’ Games to be held in Guyana from October 20 to 24.According to a representative for the team, Leon Seaton, the association is unable at this point in time to do a swimming trial activity, so instead will determine who make the final cut by assessing the performance of the swimmers, thus far for the year.GASA is expected to select a team of six boys and six girls to participate in the event.“What I can say is that there is a proposed team but I would choose not to comment on that until the team is finalised. I can’t say at this point in time but early next week.“There are a number of factors that will be taken into consideration. What we’re using to come up with the team will be previous meets. We don’t have enough time to do a swim-off.” Seaton told Chronicle Sport yesterday.According to Director of Sport Christopher Jones, no deadline has yet been given to the various associations for the submission of their team members. However, Jones is set to meet with representatives from the different sporting disciplines tomorrow.Swimming is one of seven sport disciplines listed in the annual Games, the others being athletics, table tennis, basketball, volleyball and futsal.The Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) has already named its 28-member team to represent Guyana, following their IGG trials held last Sunday at the National Track and Field Centre at Leonora. Volleyball also held trials a few weeks ago.The various teams will be competing against respective teams from Suriname.As previously reported, the tri-nation competition is going on without participation from French Guiana in this year’s event, hence it is being labelled a ‘Goodwill’ event.
