Some of the Fijian junior swim­mers have met the criteria of joining the main squad for next year’s Pacific Games in Samoa, says a senior official.

Speaking to SUNsports last night Fiji Swimming president Ben Rova said this was all achieved during the Junior Pan Pacific Championships at the Da­modar Aquatic Centre in Suva.

Rova said he was pleased with the per­formance of Fijian swimmers during the four-day competition.

“The tournament has been a great success and we started off well,” he said.

“There were three open records so far and 62 personal records achieved. “Those that have met the criteria will be invited to join the main Fiji squad.”

Rova added that this is part of the plan for 2019 Pacific Games.
