Christina Loh won first gold for WIPERS in SUKMA 2016

The travel back from the US is well worth the trip for Christina Loh as she won the first gold for Team WIPERS (Wilayah Persekutuan) in her pet event of 100m breaststroke in Kuching, Sarawak on the first day of the bi-annual swimming championship, yesterday.

Christina clocked 1:12.32 to win gold followed by Koh Jia Yi (Sel) 1:12.89 and Caryn Kay Chan (Trg) took bronze at 1:15.38.

In the men's 200m freestyle, Keith Lim, settled for silver with a time of 1:54.47 as Yeap Zheng Yang (Sel) emerged first with 1:52.29.
