SEASAC Swim Meet 2013 in Bangkok

SEASAC is an organization in South-East Asia that extends from Hong Kong, China to Surabaya, Indonesia and includes 13 schools from six different countries.  SEASAC (abbreviated for South East Asia Student Activities Conference) aims to promote student/ school activities which provide and encourage opportunities for healthy competition, pursuit of excellence, social and cultural interaction and the development of friendships within the region of South East Asia.

This year's SEASAC Swimming Championship took place in Bangkok Patana School, Bangna in Bangkok from 8 - 9 March, 2013. Some IBSC swimmers from the international schools in Kuala Lumpur have the chance to participate in this premier sports league where we witness some international-level swimmers racing among the school kids in a competitive environment.

Parents who couldn't accompany their children to the meet were able to follow the meet closely as the host school provided live streaming via the internet. What's more captivating was that the results were instantaneously updated in the Meet Mobile Apps complete with swimmers' timings, placings, scores, etc, so that supporters across the region can access the swim results in a flash.
