Team Fiji to the Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championships are a young determined squad of 38 swimmers ranging from the ages of 13 to 18 years old.
With the competitions beginning tomorrow, cooperate houses have stepped in to show their support to the young national side as they compete amongst top international teams.
Yesterday Fiji Water handed over a five thousand dollar sponsorship to team Fiji and will be the official drink providers in the four-day tournament.
Receiving the sponsorship Fiji Swimming General Manager David Dugucanavanua says while the young swimmers are eager to compete against top classed teams, the sponsorships will also help in showcasing Fiji to the world.
“We will be going up against some of the world’s top-ranked powerhouse nations in swimming so being able to actually provide Fiji water to not only team Fiji but to all the other teams allows us to be proud of our country as a host federation but also our Fijian made products.”
The Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championships will be held at the Damodar Aquatic Centre, in Suva from tomorrow till next Monday.
