Support Sirhaan Mia Swim For SA in Tunisia

Personal message

My name is Dawood Hattas.  I am the Chairperson of Marlin Swimming Club, the club that Sirhaan Mia swims with.

Sirhaan Mia, a product of Marlin Swimming Club based in Athlone, has been selected to represent South Africa at the African Junior Swimming Championships, taking place in Tunisia from 11-14 September 2019.  Sirhaan and his coach Anwar Rinquest, have been working extremely hard for more than 4 years to achieve their goal, which has finally been realised.


In qualifying to represent South Africa, twelve year old Sirhaan won the gold medal in the 100 m Butterfly in a record time of 1:04:75 at the South African National Junior Championships in Durban. The previous record was 1:06, and not even Chad le Clos managed to swim a sub 1:06 as a twelve years old!  Sirhaan also won the silver medal in the 50 m Butterfly. Sirhaan is obviously a rising star with immense potential, which coach Anwar has been nurturing over many years.


However, the competition in Tunisia is self-funded. Marlin Swimming Club aims to assist Sirhaan and coach Anwar, who was with him when he broke the SA record in Durban, to attend this prestigious African competition. We therefore appeal for your financial support to send Sirhaan and his coach to represent not only Marlin Swimming Club and South Africa, but also Athlone and Cape Town in Tunisia.

The estimated cost for both of them to attend the competition is R45,000.00:

Flights - R25000
Accommodation - R10000
Meals - R4000
Swim SA kit for Sirhaan - R3000
Transport - R3000

Your donation will make it possible for Sirhaan to participate in the African Junior Swimming Competition in Tunisia. This will be appropriate reward for the time and effort he spent training to reach this high level of swimming. The international experience will be invaluable for his continued swimming development.
