our Olympic tally of 5 medals currently.

TC recently partnered with Swakopmund’s Dome in order to re-energise the High Performance Centre. Historically known for producing quality athletes, the new partnership with MTC looks to take things up a notch.

The Dome is primarily designed to provide intense high-level training for the nation’s athletes to better prepare them for competition locally as well as on the global stage..

The aim is to retain as many Namibian talent by providing them with the necessary equipment, training and support to develop their talent on an Olympic-level. Thus, the Dome will be a regional hub that is accessible to international athletes and teams as well.

The partnership ‘reduces costs while supporting the local economy’, according to Fanus Engelbrecht, The MTC Dome High Performance Centre’s chief executive officer.

The Dome is a landmark establishment, given its well documented output and immense potential not only for sporting excellence but for the entertainment and the wellness facilities it offers.

There is great optimism that the partnership will go a long way to fostering more Namibian athletes into international sporting events and grow our Olympic tally of 5 medals currently.

“If we don’t do what the rest of the world is doing, then in the next eight to 10 years, our athletes cannot compete with their peers,” said Engelbrecht.

Speaking with the press at the launch of the revamped Dome, MTC’s Chief of Human Capital, Mr Tim Ekandjo, noted how joyous the occasion was not only for sports but for nation building.

The Dome has always been a special place in the heart of Swakopmund having been the destination for many events including concerts and award ceremonies, suchmn as the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs).

Featuring a hotel, restaurant, gym and more, the MTC Dome is well equipped to be the go-to destination for locals, tourists and athletes. So on your next visit to the coast, be sure to visit the MTC Dome High Performance Centre.
