Finis Swim Festival up in Davao del Sur

THE third and last leg of the Finis Short Course Swim Competition will be the centerpiece of the Davao Del Sur Swim Festival this month in Digos City.

Organized by Finis Philippines, in collaboration with the provincial government of Davao del Sur led by Governor Yvonne Rona-Cagas, the festival will start with the culmination of the Finis Short Course Swim Championships Mindanao leg this weekend at the Davao del Sur Olympic pool at the newly constructed Governor Douglas RA Cagas Sports, Cultural and Business Complex in Matti.

“Finis is offering the best program for homegrown talents. Because we focus on giving regular swimmers a chance to compete in a global-type environment, said FINIS Philippines Managing Director Vince Garcia. “Here they are like participating in an international event, from medals, equipment and technical people we based it to an international organized event.”

Garcia insisted that FINIS’ goal is to help the grassroots sports program and during his years of involvement in local swimming, he pointed out that there are many talents who are just waiting for an opportunity to be developed and included in the National Team.

The Finis Passig Islet 5K Open Water Swim Challenge is scheduled on August 27 and the Kids of Steel Triathlon Finis Green Aquathlon (kids and adults) on August 28 in Digos City.

According to Garcia, the top 16 swimmers in each event will compete in the national finals where bigger prizes await, including a training package for athletes who can erase a national record.
