The national swimming team march into camp today to finalise their preparations for the Junior Pan Pacific Championships which is on August 23-27 at the Damodar Aquatic Centre in Suva.

The 36-member squad are going to face swimmers from Japan, Australia, United States of America, Canada, New Zealand, China, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Ecuador and Mexico.

Fiji Swimming general manager David Dugu told SUNsports yesterday the swimmers are excited and looking forward to the competition.

“Team Fiji will be going into camp on Sunday which means the swimmers from the West will be coming over to join the Suva swimmers,” he said.

“They will remain in camp right to the last event of the day. We are excited and our preparation is on schedule as there are 11 teams coming over.

“The teams that have been selected is the best that we have. They have been preparing for a year basically for the Junior Pan Pacs.”

Dugu added the officials are confident that the team would do their best during the competition

“It is not going to be an easy competition with the other international swimmers around but the swimmers will be their best.”

Dugu said another reason of their excitement is that the competition will be a good platform to expose our upcoming swimmers.

Meanwhile, the USA and Australian swimming teams arrive today.
