Team Australia aim to win more medals at the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific compe­tition today at the Damodor City Aquatic Centre in Suva.

Team leader Jamie Saltor said most of their swimmers achieved personal best times.

“Out of the 10 medals, we won two gold and we are happy,” Saltor said.

“The swimmers have really im­proved as each day progresses and it has been good practice for us.

“It is all about how we finished and we aim to win more medals.”

Meanwhile, United States of America’s Isabel Stadden set a new Junior Pan Pacific record in the women’s 200m backstroke, with a time of 2:08.81 breaking the Junior Pan Pacs Game’s record of 2:09.59.

The competition continues to­day with the finals before the fi­nal medal tally is being finalised. Eleven countries took part in the championship.
