Fun In Fiji

13-year-old Elly Joyce, 13-year-old Samantha Cooper, 11-year-old Iris Pene and 12-year-old Skye Eden (left to right) of the Fiji Mako Swim Club are shown before the 3K race at the Fiji Ocean Swim Festival that also includes 1.5K and 10K national championship races.

Behind the young swimmers are Margie McKee from New Zealand and 78-year-old Sydney Salek. When Sydney received his 3K first place award, he quipped, "You don't have to be good to win at this lark, just outlive the opposition."
