Three new Fiji Open swimming records have been set at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Istandbul, Turkey.
Fiji’s Caroline Puamau shaved off point one five of the second in the 100m backstroke.
Tieri Erasito took off point four seconds off the old 200m butterfly while Paul Elaisa took off point two seconds off Carl Probert’s 100m butterfly event.
The trio are currently competing in the World Championship under the guidance of coach and former swim queen, Sharon Smith.
They will compete again tomorrow – Elaisa will feature in the 50m freestyle while Erasito and Puamau will race in three events.
All three swimmers have managed to secure personal bests.
