A micro team of 5 swimmers accompanied by their parents took the challenge to travel to Sandakan, Sabah for the 2nd Sandakan Open Inter-Club Swimming Championship 2015 on 6-7 June, 2015.
Hosted by PJMS Aquatic Swimming Club, the meet attracted 183 swimmers which included the best swimmers that the state of Sabah can offer over the different age group. Both IBSC swimmers and parents have had a gala time at the Land Below the Wind.
Our swimmers were all charged up as they were invited to join the relay teams from other clubs to compete in the team events.
The swimmers lived up to the motto on their team attire, "Swim Your Heart Out to Sabah" and all of them managed to bring home medals,
