Latest upate from Fiji Swimming - 4

Most of our off day will be spent with swimmers getting much needed rest, and rehabilitation work done with team physio Sharlene Nand, who has been busy keeping our swimmers injury free since day 1. For management the day will be spent planning for the last 2 days of competition, doing team laundry, and shopping for team essentials.

On the swimming front, the team built on their performance of day 1, bolstered by a visit from FS President Dennis Miller at the start of todays (23/6) finals session. He gave them words of encouragement and challenged them to do their best. The team responded to this by, achieving more pbs in finals then day 1, Matelita Buadromo just missing out on a medal with a close 4th place finish in the 100m breaststroke, and our girls relay team setting a new Fiji Womens 15-16 4 x 200m age group record. Official results will be posted on the Oceania Champs website < > .

Highlights to date:
  • Meli Malani's 50m butterfly records for 13-14 & 15-16 age-group
  • Tieri Erasito's 200m butterly record for 15-16 age-group.
  • Paul Elaisa's 200m butterfly record for 15-16 age-group
  • Women's 4 x 200m relay record 15-16 age-group
  • 23 finallists
  • Matelita's swim in the 100m breaststroke final when she just missed out on a medal
The team is in good spirits and have come together very well, even more so since the start of competition.. Their performance in the pool so far is on par with our expectations and goals, and they are confident of producing more good results once competition resumes..

Until tomorrow, Ni sa Moce from Apia.
