Cama said the team wanted to sign off an outstanding season.
“It has been pleasing to achieve our goal we set at the start of the season, to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympic and to win the World Series. It is reward for the work that a lot of our people do behind the scenes to allow us to be consistent through the year after a slow start to the season. We know it will be no easy task this weekend with a challenging pool, but we are looking to finishing on a high here in London.”
