Olympian and former national swimming champion Carl Probert is optimistic about the future of Masters swimming in Fiji.

‘Trying and get everybody else active and I think it’s a great opportunity you know while we may have ended our sporting careers I’m sure there’re so many people out there wished they had participated more on sports or had some sort of sporting career so it’s not too late they can start right now and be competitive and the best part about it is its meant to be more social’.

More masters swimming competitions are planned for the future.
