THE first day of the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championship kicked off with a positive turnout yesterday at the Damodar City Aquatic Centre in Laucala Bay, Suva.
Fiji Swimming general manager, David Dugucanavanua said the first day had been smooth running in terms of results shown and also the turnout from supporters.
“The first day of the tournament went smoothly although there had been a few technical glitches in between, other than that we have not had any major problems so far,” said Dugucanavanua.
“The Suva weather has really provided the ideal environment to host this international competition for our visiting countries,” he added.
Dugucanavanua said the logistics team had been working together to keep the competition running smoothly.
“The logistics team has been working hard; it is a collaborative effort of a lot of volunteers from within the swimming community.”
Dugucanavanua said the organising committee was also working towards providing a safe environment for everyone.
“We are making sure that all safety risks are checked out so that athletes as well as supporters and users of the facilities are guaranteed a safe place while they are here.”
The competition continues today and will end on Sunday.
