Afiq Imran bagged Overall Champ in Boys 16-17 during SICC Meet 2015


Team IBSC joined the 11th SICC Invitational Swimming Championship 2015 for the third year in a row on 1-2 August, 2015 and managed a third overall position even though the team is small with only 22 swimmers participating this year.

The meet was championed by the Philippine Swim League, followed by the host, Singapore Island Country Club as the runner-up.

This year , our team comprised of  a few junior swimmers and some senior swimmers. Not many were able to make it as the meet clashed with a local short course meet in Selangor. However, IBSC swimmers have enjoyed the away meet thoroughly as there were chances of mingling with the Singaporean and Philippines teams.

Team IBSC had an enjoyable time during the meet

Afiq Imran won the age group championship trophy for the boys 16-17 years with collection of 3 gold and 3 silver.


Many of our swimmers have taken the opportunity to renew their personal best times too, especially the younger ones leaping with improvement from one event to another.

The medallists were :

As there weren't enough swimmers in some age groups, younger junior swimmers have to swim up to higher age group to join force in the relays and all were excited to get medals for their great team effort.

The 2-day meet ended on Sunday afternoon with a farewell lunch punctuated with some awesome performances by the swim teams including a trio singing by Alia, Afiq and Alif.

IBSC wishes to express its appreciation to the gracious host, Singapore Island Country Club, for hosting the 11th SICC Invitational Swimming Championship 2015 and we hope to see again next year.

IBSC swimmers worked hard for SportExcel Leg 2


The SportExcel Junior Swimming Circuit offered opportunities for the young learners to test themselves out in the water and recently Leg 1 of the circuit was organised by Malacca Amateur Swimming Association at Hang Jebat Aquatic Stadium on 9-10 May, 2015. Meanwhile, Leg 2 was hosted by Selangor Amateur Swimming Association at Darul Ehsan Aquatic Centre, Shah Alam just last week on 13-14 June, 2015.

Group 2 girls plunging backwards in a backstroke start
Team IBSC registered only 66 swimmers for the away meet in Melaka as most kids were either having exam fever or some other events have collided with the meet. However, registration for Leg 2 swelled to 120 swimmers as it's nearer to home.

Overall, IBSC swimmers did fairly well for both legs considering the huge gap left by the over-aged swimmers. It is evident that the younger group still need more time to be developed and groomed to realise their full potential. Consistent with these expectations, IBSC was runner-up in both Legs.

Swimmers have swam hard to earn points and the spirit of togetherness both from the swimmers and parents in this game ought to be praised as the whole team gave their best shot. Points earned, no matter how little, added up the total sum, thanks to the achievers below.
