Fiji Swimming will be send­ing a team to the New Zea­land Open Championship on October 2-6.

Fiji Swimming president Ben Rova made the comment during Short Course Grand Prix Series in Nadi yesterday.

“We planned to send five or six senior swimmers as the New Zea­land Champs is a qualifier for the FINA World Championship in Chi­na in December,”Rova said.

Rova said being IOC scholarship holders Taichi Vakasama and Matelita Buadromo must take part.

“As part of their scholarship re­quirements, they are to attend the championship. We also have swim­mers like Herbert Rabua, Yolani Blake, Tevita Fotofili, Oakley Jones and Ela Rasau who will be vying to make the cut.”

Rova was impressed with the performance of the individual ath­letes.
