Vodacom Is live video streaming the Dis-Chem Sun City Swim, on its new streaming platform, called Vodacom View +.
Vodacom has teamed up with the Dis-Chem Sun City Swim in its 20th year. The network, known as South Africa’s Best and First 4G Network, will be bringing you live coverage of the event via live streaming on their new video streaming platform, Vodacom View+. Thanks to Vodacom, open-water swimming enthusiasts around the world will be able to watch all the swimming action on 21 November 2017. The Swim heralds the beginning of the 2017-2018 swimming season leading up to the aQuellé Midmar Mile, which will be held at Midmar Dam in KwaZulu-Natal on 10 and 11 February 2018.
The Dis-Chem Sun City Swim, which was first swim in 1998, sees thousands of swimmers from across South Africa descend on the picturesque Sun City resort, enjoying a weekend of open water swimming and everything else that the renowned North-West Province resort has to offer. Entry to the race also gives a swimmer a free pass to the well-loved Valley of the Waves to enjoy a relaxing afternoon after taking on the dam on the Saturday morning.
Safety is a top priority at the Dis-Chem Sun City Swim, and all a swimmer has to do is raise his or her hand to receive the assistance of one of the highly experienced lifeguards who are in the water at all times. Floatation devices known as “Safe Swimmers” are on offer for any swimmer who would like to use one. These strap around the waist and float behind the swimmer in the water without causing any drag. They provide reassurance and assistance if a swimmer were to get into difficulties during their race.
There will be plenty to do and see for swimmers and spectators alike, with a wide variety of food vendors and pop-up stalls on site. Vodacom will also provide a big screen on which spectators can watch all the action.
