The Labuan International Sea Challenge is an international multi-sport, week-long sports festival in Malaysia. This year it took place from 29 April to 1 May, 2016 at the Labuan International Sea Sport Complex, Labuan.
A few of our IBSC members participated in the Cross Channel annual swim together with Coach Zoe Khor, and the competition was mainly dominated by Sabahans.
The 5.4 km island-to-island open sea swimming was highly competitive with many international swimmers taking part. Yeong Zhen Yi was met with great challenge indeed as the competition's name suggested and managed a 1st runner-up position under the girls 13-17 years category.
Chong Yong Qi was in 9th position in the same category whilst Coach Zoe Khor managed 4th position in the women 18-39 years category.
Well done IBSC swimmers who have all came home safely with their prize money!
