From Bernhard Gemlau, Chairman SG Essen

This had never happen before in Essen and probably also in the larger area: the Kuwaiti national team in swimming will be participating from 17 to 20 July at the "Essener Sparkassen - Challenge". Since the beginning of the year Rainer Tylinski, a successful German coach and formerly country trainer of Baden-Württemberg, is working as a coach in Kuwait and has the task of bringing the Kuwaiti swimmer at the International level of performance. A certainly not simple, but very sexy and exciting task. Currently Rainer Tylinski with his 12-member team is in a training camp in Germany and at the end of this training camp, a participation in the Essen Sparkassen-Challenge is suiting well.

We welcome our guests from Kuwait, look forward to welcoming you and will do anything to remember the days of competition in Essen.
