Day 3 Results - 51st MAG 2015

The Malaysia Open Age Group swimming competition continued into the third and final day today at the National Aquatic Stadium with more medals contributed by IBSC swimmers to the Team Kuala Lumpur.

Ng Zi Syuen sprung up a pleasant surprise in the Group 4 girls 100m breaststroke event, when she snatched gold at 1:24.52 after shedding a spectacular 7 seconds off her PB. Petite Zi Syuen has proven to be a swimmer with lots of potential.

Meanwhile, Keith Lim, continued his medal hauls when he came first in the 50m backstroke by touching the wall at 27.41 perfecting his individual performance. In 50m freestyle, again he showed the spectators that he is the fastest sprinter by speeding away at 23.86, shy from breaking the meet record by merely 0.3 seconds

Pun Pei Jin, also earned praises as she took home a gold in 200m fly after improving further to a new time of 2:32.70 in the Group 3 girls category.
