"Well done!", our swimmer's coach Bruno reports.

Our swimming champion Danijel Pavlinec had his first attempt today. In 400 m freestyle he performed very well and finished sixth in the final race and improved national record twice.

In the next few days more good news can be expected from our Dani as there several other, shorter disciplines ahead.

Let's hope his coach will send us a report on that soonest possible..
