The International School Nadi swimming teams celebrated their success at the National Swimming Championship, last Friday.

Smiles glittered the faces of the 28 swimmers that competed in the championship as they won a total of 20 gold medals, 17 silvers, and five bronze.

Topping that the swimmers broke 11 records and achieved an outstanding result particularly that they were one of the small schools competing.

ISN swimming coach Samantha Chow who has been part of the team since 2016 said, there has been a lot of improvement.

“This year our goal was to improve our student’s ability to swim,” she said.

“Not only to compete at a major competition but also to believe in their own abilities and believe that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”

Chow thanked the teachers and parents who have contributed and supported the swimming team throughout their training sessions and also on competition day.

The former national swimming representative said, the team showed determination and commitment despite the other commitments they have.

“With many complaints of aches, pains and lots of homework, our swimmers still persevered on.

“Our swimmers were focussed and ready to enjoy their experience despite all the rain,” she added.

Notable swimmers to look out for in the future are; Lily Hopf, Nathaniel Samuels, Jemima Wilson, Faith Tudreu, and the Waqainabete siblings, Ezra, Eden and Zion who alone broke five records.
