|Another record: Malacca’s Low Zheng Yong on his way to win the boys’ Under-15 individual medley gold at the MSSM Swimming Championships yesterday.|
The 14-year-old added another meet record to his name when he won the boys’ Under-15 200m individual medley gold at the Hang Jebat Aquatic Centre yesterday.
Zheng Yong clocked 2:14.73 to equal Selangor’s Sebastian Soon’s record set in last year’s championships.
It was Zheng Yong’s fifth gold and his second meet record, having smashed Sarawakian Daniel Bego’s 13-year-old 100m butterfly mark on Monday.
Zheng Yong, a student at SMJK Yok Bin, had earlier won the 50m and 100m butterfly as well as the 50m and 100m breaststroke.
It was, however, not a good day for Selangor’s Rosalind Pang as she failed to add to her four-gold tally in the girls’ Under-18 category. She could only manage three silvers yesterday.
The 16-year-old lost to Penang’s Elynn Tan in the 50m backstroke and 100m freestyle and team-mate Nadia Adrianna Redza in the 200m individual medley.
Selangor still lead the overall standings with a 23-18-14 haul after three days of competition.
Penang are a distant second on 10-10-7 followed by Kuala Lumpur (9-14-16) and Malacca (9-4-2).
