A 10-member squad of the Mako Swimming Club flew out of the country yesterday to take part in the 2019 Anthony Mosse Classic at the West Wave Aquatic Centre in New Zealand this weekend.

Club secretary Talica King said they would be mak­ing their debut at the event.

“This is an international exposure for the ten young swimmers of the club,” King said.

The event is expected to lure top swimmers from around New Zealand.

“We got the cue from the Dolphins Swimming Club who has been a regular participant at the event over the years.

“With the 2019 Pacific Games this year pushes our youngsters to perform to their personal best at such events.”

The team included Kiara Tiatia, Isla Tiatia, Niconia Wivou, Thomas Lee, Tahune Samson, Erina Matsu­moto, Va Doilmara, Miley King, Selina Ross, Gerdyne Lanyon, and Israil Lanyon.

The event is named after Anthony Mosse who was one of the finest swimmers in New Zealand. The but­terfly specialist bowed out of swimming after the 1990 Auckland Commonwealth Games and left behind a record that included two Commonwealth Games gold medals, an Olympic bronze and a silver medal from world championship.

The competition starts on Friday and ends on Sun­day.
