THIRTY-two teams have entered the Fiji School Swimming Competition which starts today at the Damodar Aquatic Centre in Suva.

As many as 509 athletes from primary and secondary schools will be participating in the two-day event.

The Fiji National Schools Swimming Association president Patrick Bower said they hoped to develop the participants in all aspects of life through this competition.

"To ensure that we maintain our high standards in running these competitions and to also make this special event a reality, we needed assistance in regards to funding," Bower said.

The Fiji National Sports Commission stepped in and gave $12,000 for the development of swimming to the various schools including the administration of this week's competition.

"Therefore, the sport's commission's financial assistance will make this a reality which will mean much to the swimmers, providing them with an opportunity to pit their skills against the best of their age group in the country," Bower added.
