Well, since they are building new pools, i would guess its a long term project.
The situation as it is right now is pathetic. Only 3 swimming pools in total, 2 in Skopje, one in Struga (as part of the high school there). Only one out of the two in Skopje work since there are trouble with the heating.
Now, with 9 more pools, I guess we will have a proper league
and not like the one we have with a tournament system.
The interest for the sport is big among the kids which is a surprise to me since the sport was very small. This success points the lights to the sport and I am very happy for that. I think we have the talents to be competitive after few years... Now, coaches might be problem,but I guess there will be some coaches imported as long there is money in the sport.
I would love to see Mladost, Vardar or Lokomotiva back on track as well as the new teams building tradition. Good luck to the young water polo players in MKD
