The Dolphins Swimming Club won the Short Course Open National competition at the Damodar City Aquatic Centre in Suva yesterday.

Coached by national coach Sharon Smith, the club collected two gold medals after the two days of competition.

Fiji Swimming president Jerome Kado said the tournament was a success.

“More elite and young swimmers competed and produced positive results,” Kado said.

“Seventy (70) swimmers competed in the competition and it was good to see young swimmers coming through and showing very impressive results.”

The competition was to gauge Fiji team performance for the 2014 Doha Short Course World Championships in Qatar on December 3-7.

“Swimmers are really fighting for a spot for Doha and Rosemarie Rova from the Barracuda Swimming Club from Nadi is looking good to make the cut,” he said.

Rova did well in the women’s 200 metres butterfly clocking 2min: 42.03sec.

Taichi Vakasama of the Barracuda club competed well in the Open grade where he finished fourth in the men’s 400m freestyle with a time of 4min:41.78sec and finished second in the 200m breaststroke (2:33.69min).

Favourite Matelita Buadromo of Dolphins club won the 200m with a time of 2:09.72 seconds and 100m freestyle with a time of 58.40sec.
