BSP has announced a total sponsorship support of over $7,000 for Fiji Swimming's Long Course Age Nationals which begins tomorrow at the National Aquatics Centre.

BSP's Head of Marketing Nirdesh Singh confirmed that the funding reflects the healthy relationship shared with the Fiji Swimming community which has been maintained over the years.           

 "We are delighted to support an event that continues to be a breeding ground for new talent in the sport as witnessed in past competitions where new national records have been set by children," Mr Singh said.

"In line with our commitment to the Pacific Games, we are supporting major sporting initiatives that serve as an excellent platform for elite athletes to compete."

Fiji Swimming vice-president East Viliame Takayawa said this would be the last event for their Pacific Games swimmers and also for some of their Commonwealth Youth Games reps heading to Samoa in September.

"We anticipate some impressive performances at this three day event and we are grateful to BSP for this much needed funding that has assisted us greatly with hosting it," Takayawa said.

The competition will be held in five age categories from 10 Years, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17 plus age group. Over 300 swimmers will compete for the 1,200 medals at stake during this three day event.   

The Barracuda Swimming Club from Nadi and Suva's Dolphins Swimming Club are the clubs to look out for after dominating last year's competition.
