1st ASUM Junior Splash proved to be a hit among young swimmers

Last weekend was indeed a long tiring weekend as the inaugural ASUM/NSC/MILO/MADWAVE Junior Swim Splash 2016 kicked off for the first time at Kompleks Renang Kuala Lumpur on 12-13 March, 2016.

The junior meet, hosted by Persatuan Renang Amatur Kuala Lumpur, has received overwhelming response from 24 clubs with registration of 722 swimmers. Swim teams from north and south traveled to join the central development meet in conjunction with the starting of school holidays too, resulting in heats after heats of swim by many excited kids. As expected, the meet dragged on till night falls on both days with continuing support from parents as some swimmers might be charting their first official timings in this junior meet.

Juniors up to age 12 years raced for experience in the ASUM Jr Splash Swim 2016 
The Junior Splash provided a great platform for young swimmers to "test water"

Team IBSC had its fair share of swimmers with 80 members participating in the competition. Some of them represented their respective schools in the meet. Overall, swimmers did well with PBs being recorded by many even though the weather was not forgiving with extreme heat in the afternoon and some intermittent showers in the evening. IBSC managed a 3rd position overall with the immense great competition from other strong clubs.

Mr Alex Lee of  Madwave presented the Overall Champion trophy to Sharizan for winning the 11-12 years boys category 
Ashley Ting, collected 1 gold, 7 silver and 2 bronze

The IBSC parents and senior swimmers deserve praises for their willingness to volunteer and offer to help in running the meet. Big thanks to them all.  Appreciation as usual also goes to all IBSC coaches, Team Managers and chaperons for the amazing teamwork. Lastly, we wish to thank WishTee for their generosity in supplying free T-shirts to our youngsters.

Check out the results here.
