On this note, Mr Choong Yip Weng, an ex-IBSC swimmer is delighted to share with us some old photos taken of the swim meets which he took part in 1980 and 1981.
These old photos dating 33 years back may be fading in colour, but the glory of winning and spirit of competitions could still be distinctly felt in the pictures. Some feature famous swimmers like Nurul Huda Abdullah and May Tan, both of whom were also ex-IBSC members.
Enjoy the good old times!
