INTERNATIONAL Secondary School Suva wants to improve its performance from last year as they prepare to participate in the 2023 National Schools Swimming Championship.
Team manager Jonathan Uluiviti, said they hoped to scoop more medals this year, while at the same time exposing their new and younger swimmers to the atmosphere of such a competitive tournament.
“Our goal this year is to just improve our performance since last year, scoop more medals and expose our new and younger swimmers to the atmosphere of such a tournament,” he said.
Uluiviti said they managed to win a handful of medals last year and would work harder to better their performance.
“But we know that it will be very difficult, as we are expecting tough competition from other schools, especially from the Western Division.
“Almost all of our swimmers are part of swim clubs that take part in different swim meets during the year, so most of them have already been preparing for quite some time.
“Even so, we know our swimmers will go out and do their best to make their school proud.”
Uluiviti also wanted to thank all the parents of the swimmers, along with former students of ISS who have been supporting their swim team in previous years.
“Support from the parents, former swimmers, and ex-students has always been there in previous years.
“So we just want to thank them for their patience, support, and help in getting our swimmers ready for this year’s finals.
“Our swimmers are very excited for the competition to start, so we wish other participating teams all the best for the finals.”
