Promising tanker Marc Bryan Dula of Wisenheimer Academy will be leading the Philippine Swimming League’s (PSL) campaign in the 2017 Hamilton Aquatics Swimming Championship beginning today at the Hamad Sports Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The 10-year-old Dula is fresh from a successful campaign in the Japan Age-Group Swimming Championship held in Tokyo last month.
“We’re happy to develop our new swimmers and give them a chance to compete in Dubai from grassroots. They will compete yet I want them to enjoy Dubai who has most wonderful places in the world,” said PSL President Susan Papa.
