Further to the Prime Minister’s address to the nation and subsequent statements from Government regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Fiji Swimming Executives have made some decisions relating to their swimming events this year.
The following decisions relating to their Long Course Grand Prees, Easter Championships, Long Course National AGE GROUP Championship and the Oceania Swimming Championships events over the coming months- keeping the safety and wellbeing of their swimming families the priority of their decision making process.
The Fina Swimming Technical Officials Clinic to be held prior to the championships is now cancelled too, but are currently awaiting advise from its President regarding the Fiji Schools Nationals Championships event.
Fiji Swimming understand the impact that the above decisions will have on many people that have been training and planning to race over the coming months but, they are in unprecedented times requiring unprecedented decisions.
The organisation would also like to reiterate that the safety and well-being of their swimming families and friends come first.
