SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD Calum Lobendahn is working on balancing education with swimming as he prepares to compete in the Fiji National Schools Swimming Championship at the Damodar City Aquatic Centre in Suva on Friday.The Rewa lad said his dream of becoming an engineer in the future would need extra attention in his studies, but at the same time, the love of swimming and representing his school was also his concern.
“At the moment, education is my first priority, but I know I have to perform at the best of my ability during the competition because I love swimming,” said Lobendahn.
The Marist Brothers High School student is no stranger to swimming competitions. He started in the sport when he was young.
“I have been participating in swimming competitions for the past eight years and I know I have to do my best for my school in this championship,” he said.
Lobendahn will be one of the 31 swimmers representing Marist Brothers High School and he will be competing in four different events.
