Caleb Puamau broke the 50metres freestyle record set by his father in 1989.

During the Swimming Grand Prix Three last month , Caleb broke his dad’s record of 31.98ses with a time 31.56 secs..

His parents are former national swimmers Peni and Caroline Puamau.

“Being raised by parents who were former swimmers, there was a lot of pressure for me to meet their expectation,” Caleb said.

“Breaking the record during the Grand Prix 3 2018 was not what I was expecting. But thanks to the support of my parents I was able to do that.”

Caleb was excited with his performance at the Fiji Swimming Long Course Age Na­tional Championship in the past two days

“I will be participating in the 50metres but­terfly and 50m backstroke.

“So far I am happy with my performance.”

His mother Caroline was happy with her son’s performance.

“He is very committed with his training,” she said.

“As a mother and his coach, I’m happy for him.”
