The swimming competition at the 2003 South Pacific Games took place from June 30-July 7, 2003 (Monday-Monday) in Suva, Fiji.

The pool events were held on the first 6 days in the 50m (long-course) pool at Fiji's National Aquatics Centre, and a 3-kilometre ("3K") open water race was held at Pacific Harbour on Monday, July 7, 2003. Originally, a 5K open water race was to be contested--5K being a more widely internationally accepted race distance than a 3K. However, rough conditions on-course pushed the turn markers/buoys out of position and the length of the race needed to be changed to accommodate the conditions.[1]

Overall, Papua New Guinea's Ryan Pini (male) and New Caledonia's Diane Bui Duyet (female) were named "Swimmers of the Meet" for their overall performances: Pini won 7 events, 4 in record time and earned 12 medals overall; Bui-Duyet won 10 with 5 SPG records, and 11 medals total.[2]

  10. ^ a b c The results of the men's 1500 free indicate that the top-3 times are: Saminadin-7:05.27, Riviere-7:14.46, and Dubois-Duvivier-7:48.61. This cannot be times for a full 1500m, as they are over 7 minutes faster than the World Record in the event; and over 9 minutes faster than the listed Games Record at the time (16:23.84)--none of the swimmers are listed as having swum better than that record, either. As such, no times are listed in the above table, pending confirmation of what happened in the event. However, the order-of-finish of the results is still presumed accurate, and is shown here.
