Kenyan swimming prodigy Sara Mose lands prestigious World Aquatics Scholarship

Kenya’s 17-year-old swimmer Sara Mose has secured a prestigious swimming scholarship with World Aquatics for the 2024-2025 season. Mose, who is based in Poland, will now shift her training to Antibes, France.

According to Collins Marigiri, the Secretary General of Kenya Aquatics, Mose’s scholarship will serve as motivation for other swimmers to excel.

“Sara Mose is one of the promising stars in Kenyan swimming, and we are glad that she has received a prestigious scholarship from World Aquatics, which will go a long way in motivating other swimmers,” stated Marigiri.

“We are more than ready as a federation to work with all athletes to see them excel in their swimming careers. This is just the beginning, and more are coming,” he added.

Marigiri also called for unity among stakeholders to further develop the sport, saying: 

“My humble request to swimming stakeholders is to work together and embrace unity rather than fighting one another. There is so much potential in this sport if people work together with resilience.”

Mose, who recently participated in this year’s African Games in Accra, Ghana, now has extra motivation after shining at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Trinidad and Tobago last year. She kicked off her international debut in style by recording personal bests in the women’s 50m backstroke and 50m freestyle.

Her performance at the Games, where she battled hard against top swimmers from Australia, England, Wales, and Trinidad and Tobago, is a testament to her talent and potential.
