The Speedo Thai nationals progressed to the third day today with a tri-colour achievement by KL swimmers starting with Steve Khiew who aced gold in his 100m backstroke in Group 2 boys, team mate Chan Jun Jian clamped a silver in 400m freestyle and lastly Sebastian procured a bronze in 200m butterfly in Group 1 boys.
Obviously, size is not a hindrance to Steve. Well done!

Team mate, Chan Jun Jian, did not want to be left out in the medallion squad too, as he salvaged a silver in 400m freestyle under Group 1 boys with a time of 4:11.07, slicing off more than 3 seconds from his PB. The first placing was won by Indian swimmer, Kusha Rawat at 4:10.28 and the third placed was staged by Hong Kong swimmer, Lam Chak Hang at 4:11.22.

Sebastian Soon resumed his search for more medals on the third day, but has to settle for a bronze in 200m butterfly event under Group 1 boys after 2 Thai rivals stormed faster to reach at 2:05.21 and 2:08.30 to claim the top 2 positions. However, Sebastian will have to be contented for the time being, as his bronze timing of 2:09.66 is by far his personal best since he clocked 2:10.06 in MIAG 2017 just last month.
We wish the KL team all the best in their unfinished events and missions tomorrow and the day after.
Way to go KL!
