Giving wings (and fins) to such aspirations over the past year in Muscat is the Nautilus Swimming Club, which was established in partnership with, and  is based at, Knowledge Gate International School (KGIS). The club began operation in September 2015 with a small team and an Olympic coach on board. In this brief period, it has grown to a club with three coaches, providing training to more than 100 youngsters and adults year-round.

It has built up its own competitive team, which includes students from KGIS and other schools, who attend competitions in Oman and abroad. These include competitions like the Dubai International Aquatic Championships (officially recognised as qualification for Rio 2016 Olympics) and CBCE National Championships.

Nautilus is now taking the next step as an active member of the sporting community by hosting their own meet in Muscat. Thanks to support from ZOGGS, a leading company in swimwear and essential gear, Oman's most talented swimmers will be brought together in one pool. The event is fully supported by the Oman Swimming Association, whose referees and officials will judge the meet on March 10 at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.

Several teams have been invited to compete in the Nautilus meet, including Oman National Swim team, British School Muscat Marlins, American British Academy Vipers swim team, The Sultan School Sharks swim team and the Youth Centre (under Ministry of Sports of Oman). Swimmers will be competing in five different age categories in 18 events; the winners of which will be awarded by ZOGGS in recognition for outstanding performance gained only through hard work in daily training. ZOGGS will also be recognising the ‘Coach of the meet’, a leader who registers the biggest competing team, in appreciation of this contribution to developing swimming in Oman.

Also deserving of recognition is the youngest team entering the meet, which comprises KGIS students who began swimming last season. Although young, these swimmers achieved qualification times to enter the Hamilton Aquatics Dubai Open and Development meet, during which they will face the Oman National Swim Team.

All these achievements became possible with the help and hard work provided of the coaching team led by Ivan Proskura. With coach Proskura’s Olympic and Paralympic coaching experience, the Nautilus Swim Team is helping strengthen the sport of swimming in Oman. Having coached several athletes to success and greatness, Proskura is now helping young swimmers at the beginning of their journey, giving them vision to what lies ahead.

He comes with the wealth of sporting knowledge and stories of when his greatest athletes were still unknown and what it took for those dedicated swimmers to become legends. Among these legends is the ‘Queen of Breastroke’ Svitlana Bondarenko, who Proskura brought to three Olympic Games, making her a European Champion. Oleksii Fedina was a Paralympic star bringing home two silver and three gold medals from Beijing Paralympics.

Coach Proskura’s trainees have broken countless records across the former USSR and Ukraine. Coach Proskura now looks forward with the Nautilus  team and the young athletes excited to showcase their skills this Friday at the very first Nautilus Invitational Swim Meet.
