The Provincial Sports and Games Development Office (PSGDO) and the Philippine Finswimming Federation, Inc. (PFFI) officially launched finswimming in Laguna on April 8, 2017 at the Laguna Sports Complex, Sta. Cruz, Laguna.

 

Mrs. Mary Ann C. Reyes of the PFFI conducted a seminar and licensing exam to Laguna swimming club coaches. Laguna swimmers were also given basic finswimming lessons.She was pleased with the performance of Laguna swimmers and offered to provide programs for swimmers who may have the potential to be included in the national training pool. The PFFI also lend monofins to selected athletes for their training.

 

Sports Development Officer Gerardo S. Cantada is optimistic that through partnership with the PFFI and local swimming slubs, the province of Laguna under the leadership of Governor Ramil L. Hernandez can develop swimmers who can represent the province in higher level finswimming competitions.


Finswimming is an aquatic sport which is widely known in European countries. It is swimming but requires bi-fin and monofin. The ConfédérationMondiale des ActivitésSubaquatiques (CMAS) is the international governing body for finswimming which supervises international and continental finswimming competitions like the Southeast Asian Games.
