Fiji swimming rep, Rosemarie Rova came close to breaking a 21 year old national record while competing in the Pacific School Games in Adelaide, Australia yesterday.
The Nadi Barracudas swimmer clocked 1 minute 7.97 seconds in the Under-13 100 meters Butterfly event, just missing out on the record time set by former swimming champion, Caroline Pickering in the 1995 South Pacific Games of 1 minute 7.06 seconds.
Head of Team Fiji contingent, Jennifer Liew says the swimmers are doing well and are clocking personal best times and even improving their times.
49 local junior swimmers are competing in the Pacific School Games; going up against 3500 swimmers from around the region.
