Fiji swimmers are doing well in the State New Zealand Short Course Championships at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre.
In the first day yesterday, the swimmers recorded their personal best times in the heats and in the finals.
Fiji Swimming president Glynis Miller was impressed with the outcome so far.
“They have done well in their age group competition and we are impressed with their performance,”Miller said.
“Four swimmers are competing in their respective age group categories and they have recorded their personal bests in their events.”
Herbert Rabua, Meli Malani, Tevita Takayawa and Eugene Kado are competing in their respective age groups events.
In the finals of the 100m butterfly, Malani finished in the 8th position.
“Our competitors finished in the top 10 in their respective events which is an exceptional result for us,” Miller said.
“We are taking this international competition as a build up for the upcoming FINA World Swimming Championship in Istanbul, Turkey in December.
“The competition in NZ finishes on Thursday and on Friday our swimmers will compete in the National Swimming Championship which will be held in Nadi.
“From the championship we will select players for the FINA World Swimming Championship.”
