Melaka Junior Splash, Leg 2 revealed promising IB swimmers

The 2nd Leg of ASUM/NSC/MILO Junior Splash Swim 2017 has just ended last Sunday from 22 Sept to 24 Sept 2017 at Pusat Akuatik Hang Jebat, Melaka.

IBSC Group 3 Boys relay team brought its supporters to cloud nine when their group was the performing squad in the relays winning 3 gold and 1 silver out of 4 relay events. The team, consisted of Sean Chin, Daud Agam, Oswin Wong, Harry Chong, Medhavinz Seew and Mathew Tang, not only showed their great team spirit but their united strength by clinching gold in 4 x 50m and 4 x 100m freestyle relays and 4 x 100m medley relays coupled with silver in 4 x 50m medley relay.

“ It was tough match, but we stayed solid. We must create this winning mentality that make us believe that we can beat any team,” said Daud Agam, 12.

For individual events, our most promising young and talented sprinter in Group 5 boys, Muhammad Dhuha, 8, continued with his medals hunting quest from Junior Splash Leg 1. Dhuha dashed to 4 gold in 50m free, 50m back, 50m butterfly and 100m free.

I would like to take this opportunity to congrats to all swimmers who did well in this outing and thanks to all the parents for their cooperation and supports. Heartiest appreciation to Coach Shazali, Coach Kamal for their selfless contribution and guide, and to my team mates Mr. Teo, Mr. & Mrs. Ho, Ms. Lily to make it an successful event.

IBSC would also like to thank FINIS Swimshop for sponsoring the team with a portable changing tent for the convenience of the swimmers. The swimmers just loved using the tent which saved them trouble visiting the rest rooms.
