Sharizan Shazali, known to be great backstroker, claimed 2 gold in his pet events. He was catching up pretty steadily in his breaststroke as he sliced off considerable time to a new PB of 1:11.86 in 100m breaststroke to win the silver and 32.57 in 50m breaststroke to snatch the bronze.

Comrade, Yap Min Shun also do not want to be left out as he won 1 gold and 1 bronze in his freestyle events.

Yap Min Shun, shaved times to 2 new PBs in Junior Splash Leg 2 and was happy to have won 1 gold in 50m freestyle (25.84) and a bronze in 100m freestyle (56.70)

A newbie in the junior squad worthy of mention is Riverling Choo who returned from Peru last year and joined IBSC. She proved her mini but solid strength as she swam swiftly to 1 silver and 1 bronze in the 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle respectively to create new PBs for herself.
