Myrtha Pools and the Colombian Swimming Federation FECNA join forces to promote water sports in Colombia


Myrtha Pools is proud to promote water sports and foster Colombian talent as we become sponsors of FECNA, the Colombian Swimming Federation. We have signed a three-year agreement on June 5, 2023, in the city of Cali at the federation’s offices. This new alliance between the international leader in competition pools and the Colombian Swimming Federation has been emphasized by Jorge Enrique Soto, President of FECNA: “We trust that swimming in our country will take center stage, and this new support from Myrtha Pools will help us fulfill all the dreams we have for our sport. The arrival of this giant to the Federation is a step towards the sports quality that we are building day by day“.

Promoting the growth of aquatic disciplines with programs that range from swimming development to continuous improvement of high-performance programs, such as at the Ministry of Sports’ CAR, is the priority of this agreement, as confirmed by Philippe Gerbier, Business Development Director of Myrtha in Latin America: “For Myrtha, it is a great honor to sponsor the Colombian Swimming Federation because we want to promote the swimming movement in Colombia and contribute to the creation of top-notch aquatic facilities. It is the beginning of a great adventure“. This concept is also reiterated by Julio Ramírez, Manager of Sinergym – Myrtha’s distributor in Colombia: “This agreement is the first step in generating great events, great venues, and great projects that will benefit many people here in Colombia, not only high-performance athletes but also individuals who want to learn a new sport and start a career, especially in swimming“.

This alliance between Myrtha Pools and FECNA marks the beginning of a new era in water sports in Colombia. Together, we will give a great boost to Colombian swimming and build a bright aquatic future.
