What an event! The atmosphere at the venue for Hari Sukan Negara was filled with roaring cheers, funfair and excitement! IBSC boys and girls were roaring to go. After all this was a rare occasion for most of them to participate in an Aqualthon event apart from their normal swimming competitions.
At the starting block, swimmers taking their mark and off they go. The spectators cheered with excitement and encouragement. As they resurfaced out of the pool for the changeover from swim to run, spectators were equally anxious especially on how swimmers will perform. Our swimmers did not have any difficulties at the changeover and they continued their run at swift pace to the finishing line.
Everyone was exhausted after the race but their enthusiasm was still going strong. Who won? All participants won as they finished with a well deserving finisher's medal.
Well done IBSC!
