IBSC broke most records in the 35th President Cup 2016

The much awaited President Cup 2016, has just ended after 3 gruesome days of competition at Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan in Shah Alam from 25th to 27th November 2016. A total of 42 clubs with 1,213 athletes participated this year.

Team IBSC has the biggest contingent of 164 swimmers being registered, a good sign of keen participation in the annual inter-club competition, especially among the junior learners, .  The big team led by Mr Vincent Low and Mr KK Yap as the team managers experienced hectic days catering to the needs of the swimmers and coaches. Fortunately the good chaperones and supportive parents all rendered great help and assistance as usual.


Team IBSC settled for 1st runner-up position with a modest shortfall after clinching 967.5 points behind PADE (1113 points). The 3rd position was won by DSA with 385.5 points.

IBSC however managed to close the gap compared to last year and that is itself an accomplishment. What is more important is that many swimmers progress well and set splendid PBs after months of diligent training, thanks to all the coaches at various levels.

Much to the delight of the parents and coaches, IBSC broke the most number of records in the meet and we congratulate the record breakers below.
