Addressing the media, MultiChoice Uganda Public Relations and Communications Manager, Tina Wamala said DStv Uganda had taken a keen interest in supporting children in sports.
"We believe in a generation of fully rounded children that don't only excel in academics but also participate in sports," Ms. Wamala said, adding: "Swimming has taken centre stage for DStv Uganda because it physically and mentally engages children and it is a fun game."

Ms. Wamala said DStv Uganda contributed Shs25 million to support the gala, and also thanked the parents and families of the participants for their support. "It has been great seeing them cheering on and the tremendous encouragement given," she noted.
The Secretary General Uganda Swimming Federation, Moses Mwase, while congratulating the winners, said: "We thank all the participants for taking part in the gala and professionally competing and encouraging each other, you have all made this event remarkable. We congratulate the winners for the excellent exhibition of talent at its best and also encourage those who didn't win, never to give up and look forward to the coming competitions."
