The organisers of the Fiji Swimming Long Course Grand Prix mini-series two were happy with the outcome of the event despite some children not turning up because of sickness.

Fiji Swimming technical consultant Trisa Dunn said some swimmers recorded some personal best times.

“It’s very encouraging to see these swimmers who are in the provisional squad improve on their performances each time they compete and it’s a good sign,” Dunn said.

She said it was also encouraging that they had officials, who were recognsed by the world body taking part yesterday.

“We have these two women Amelia Naivalu, who holds World Aquatics technical official list number 22 as a referee and Susau Ilaisa as a starter on the same list.”

The mini-series two was held at the Suva Olympic Pool yesterday.

The LC Mini meet series 2 was supported by the Westpac Bank staff members.

Meanwhile, the relay team to Commonwealth Games 2022 was represented by Epeli Rabua at the Fiji Sports Award nominees function on Friday night.

The Fiji Sports Awards 2023 Nominees Night was held to recognise the efforts of athletes, sports administrators, volunteers, technical officials and sports organisations. Minister for Youth and Sports Jese Saukuru was the speaker during the event at the Vodafone Arena.
