Proud mum Rosemary Rova was ecstatic when her daughter Rosemarie clocked (1.13.69mins) in the women’s 13-14 age group 100metres individual medley.
This was during the Short Course Age Group National Swimming competition which ended at the Nadi Sports Club yesterday.
The Nadi Barracudas’ swimmer broke the record set by her elder sister, Cheyenne (1.14.06mins) in 2010.
Rosemary commended her daughter’s determination to follow her elder sister’s footsteps.
“She is really powerful because initially when she was growing up, all the attention was on the two older girls,” Rosemary said.
“So, I think she’s just fought her way up and she’s very strong.
“She trains a lot, dedicated, committed and puts in a lot of hard work.”
She said despite her daughter being sick, young Rosemarie managed to recover well.
“She is gearing up for the Pacific School Games, so she will have to stay out of the water for about one or two weeks because of her ear infection,” she said.
“She knows her goals. we haven’t got gold in a long time so hopefully she will win one at the Pacific School Games.”
Meanwhile, Rosemarie said she hoped to keep in par with her older siblings.
“They inspire me to do more things and Im more determined to improve when they inspire me,” she said.
“I’ll work more on technique because it takes you far, the overall competitions been really hard so when you win gold, silver or bronze you feel like everything’s paid off.”
She would prepare now the Pacific School Games in November.
