Milestone achievement

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, March 19, 2014

FORMER national butterfly 100m swimming champion Dennis Miller has achieved a milestone after being appointed a member of the executive committee of the International Governing Body for the Sport of Aquatics.

Fiji Swimming president Jerome Kado said this was a great achievement not only for Miller as an individual but also for both Fiji and the Oceania region.

"It reflects and further strengthens Fiji's capability and potential to contribute more to regional and international sports," said Kado.

Miller joins FINA president and IOC member from Uruguay Dr Julio Maglione, European Swimming Federation president Paolo Barelli from Italy, FINA treasurer Pipat Paniangvait from Thailand and African Swimming Confederation president and IOC member in South Africa, Sam Ramsamy, on the FINA executive.

The appointment followed FINA's decision last year to expand its executive committee to include representatives of all five continental associations.
