The MSSS Swimming Championship 2013 saw many records being broken last week when the annual meet took place from 26 Feb - 1 March, 2013 in Shah Alam.
The Soon brothers, Nicholas and Sebastian won the Best Boys category for U15 and U12 respectively.

Nicholas, a breaststroker, was expected to re-write all the meet records in his pet events and he did so by clocking new times of 31.82s in 50m, 1.09.37s in 100m and 2.31.45s in 200m breaststroke, the latter two were his own records last year. In total, Nicholas grabbed 6 gold and 1 silver. With a string of excellent and renewed times, it's not surprising Nicholas was named the Overall Champ for the boys.

The Soon brothers were grateful for their parents' support and credited their coaches, Coach Shazali and Coach Kamaruddin for nurturing them to their current state of victory.
Meanwhile, Mak Ai Sin did profoundly well for her Damansara Jaya school by breaking 2 records one of which was her own record in the previous year for 200m IM. Ai Sin garnered 10 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze in all the 14 events she swam, which entitled her to the Best Girl award for Girls 16-18 category.

David Ong, also an IBSC swimmer, swimming for Sri KL school, performed at the top-notch mode by taking 4 gold and 1 silver; and in the midst, created 2 new records in 50m backstroke (38.58s) and 50m breaststroke (40.62s). Young David who is merely 9 was thrilled to be bestowed the U10 Best Boy.
David's sister, Kimberly Ong, also contributed to the joint sibling success by winning 4 silver and 3 bronze in her events for 13-15 girls. She improved remarkably and deserved a pat on the back especially having to swim alongside with other stronger state swimmers.
