Asian International School who has the distinction of organising this swimming gala uninterrupted for the past 25 years has witnessed many swimmers of national standing emerge from this event, many of whom have gone on to represent Sri Lanka.

This year too, the championships are bound to generate much excitement as it is an event which is looked forward to by both students and parents of the international schools.
