The 'Waves' Learn to Swim Program has now been in place for just over a year and four swimmers who have worked their way through the 7-level program have been invited to join The KAUST Sharks Competitive Swim Team. The first to be selected was Yuqiao Nie aged 7, who was nervous at the start but is now loving training with The KAUST Sharks under junior swim team coach Mohammed Tahan.
