- Happy 2017 all swimmers and swiming teams January 9, 2017
Swimming has always been a popular sport on Gotland and one where we have seen considerable success. Our most successful swimmer, Ida Sandin, is well known in the context of the NatWest Island Games, having won an incredible 11 golds. She is now a member of Sweden’s national team. There are also several other swimmers competing at national level in Sweden as juniors and seniors.
We have accrued extensive experience in organising swimming competitions too, not least when the
NatWest Island Games were last held on Gotland. However, there is also the annual Solberga Open and Kneippbyn swim which, in 2011, had approx 200 swimmers in each competition from clubs across Sweden.
All 49 events in the By-Laws will be included in the Games on Gotland.
