It was a heart-pounding moment to watch the 200m butterfly swim on day 1 of SUKMA Swimming when the final event started with Vernon Lee (Swk) leading the swim from the start to the third lap, until our IBSC swimmer, Wong Jun Bin, turbo-charged his swim to take-over Vernon at the last moment. Jun Bin representing Wilayah Persekutuan over-took Vernon and touched the wall first at 2:05.97 to claim his first SUKMA gold followed by Vernon at 2:06.87.

During the 50th Malaysia Age Group Open Swimming Championship last month, Jun Bin broke the 13-14 age-group results in the same event with a slightly better time of 2:05.91.
Meanwhile, Tan Gin Yu, also an IBSC swimmer, swam to bronze with a time of 2:08.21.
