Congratulations to all IBSC swimmers and coaches for achieving great results and improvement in PBs.

A sweet success for IBSC in successfully retaining the President Cup champion trophy in the 38th National Inter-Club Swimming Championships 2019

Among all the 40 participating clubs, IBSC tops the Championship with 1,158 total points, followed by DSAS Swim Club with 1,090.50 points and PADE-SuperSharkz Swimming Club at 899 points, in last week's National Inter-Club Meet.

All IBSC swimmers have played their role in contributing to the collective success to win this year’s President Cup again, continuously for the 3rd year in a row after a break in 2016.

Such great feat couldn't have been achieved, without the hard work of the coaches and support teams. Their continuous solid support and encouragement throughout the 3-day stiff competition were exemplary.

Medal contributors are worth-mentioning below, although we could not cover all of them.

Muhammad Dhuha Bin Zulfikry, from Group 4 boys, swam with confidence to grab the first individual gold medal for the club in the 50m butterfly and also breaking the meet record (held by Tetsuharu Dohi at 30.79 since 2016) with his impressive new PB of 30.11, setting the right momentum for the team. He continued to deliver 5 more individual gold medals in 100m breaststroke (PB 1:20.68), 50m backstroke (PB 33.24), 100m butterfly (breaking meet record with PB 1:07.56), 100m freestyle (PB 1:02.70) and 100m backstroke (PB 1:13.72). Dhuha continued to add a bronze medal to his collection in 50m freestyle (PB 29.53) giving a total of 7 individual medals.

His brother, Muhammad Arif Bin Zulfikry, from Group 3 boys, also showed great achievement by delivering 3 bronze medals for 50m freestyle (PB 26.72), 100m freestyle (PB 57.90) and 100m backstroke (PB 1:07.84).

For Group 1 Boys, Bryan Leong, delivered 2 gold medals for 100m butterfly (PB 55.00) and 50m freestyle (23.95). With new PB 55.00s he broke the meet record for the 100m butterfly (MR 56.32s since 2013) and he only missed by 0.01s to break the 50m freestyle meet record. His impressive performance continued by clinching a bronze medal for 100m freestyle. Meanwhile, Low Ken Ji, also from the same age group, had beaten all his comrades for the 100m freestyle to nab the individual gold medal with a new PB of 52.97. Nonetheless, Bryan, Farhan Andi Maroef, Xiang Zhi all contributed strong points in this event.

Group 2 Girls proved to be strong as well, lead by Ng Zi Syuen, total of 5 medals, contributing 3 silver medals in 100m breaststroke (PB 1:16.99), 50m backstroke (PB 32.35) and 100m backstroke (PB 1:10.73). She also gave us 2 bronze medal for 50m breaststroke (PB 36.57) and 50m freestyle (PB 28.46). She is an all rounder. 

Group 3 Girls was led by Lee Wei Wen having bagged 6 individual medals - 2 gold for 100m butterfly (PB 1:09.85) and 50m freestyle (PB 27.90); 2 silver for 50m butterfly (PB 31.41) and 100m freestyle (1:01.71) and 2 bronze. 

For the age 11-12 boys, Ng Chong Cheng (total 5 individual medals) brought home 2 individual gold medals - one for 50m backstroke (PB 29.77) and another for breaking the Daniel Bego’s (26.06 *2002) meet record of 50m freestyle (PB 25.80); and plus 3 silver medals for 100m backstroke (PB 1:07.66), 50m backstroke (PB 33.20) and 100m freestyle (PB 57.87)

We are blessed to have our seniors swimmers joining the Open category. IBSC senior and national swimmer, Keith Lim himself delivered an outstanding performance with 2 individual gold medal won for Men Open 50m butterfly and 50m backstroke.  

Steve Khiew, on the other hand swam up to higher category in open and still managed to deliver gold medal for 100m backstroke (PB 58.50) and silver medal for 100m freestyle. 

Hollymax Bell, grabbed 4 individual bronze medals for Men Open 50m backstroke, 100m butterfly, 50m breaststroke and 100m backstroke.

IBSC seniors contributing massive points to the Club

It was a real pumped-up excitement for the 4x100m Freestyle Mixed Relay event, for  both swimmers and parents present. Our IBSC Boys 17 and Under relay team comprises of Lay Kye Xern, Muhammad Dhuha Zulfikry, Muhammad Arif Zulfikry and Low Ken Ji; improved the best time at 3:48.88 and contributed gold medal. On the other hand, IBSC Girls 17 and Under relay team consists of Ng Zi Syuen, Shelly Ting, Karla Lim and Lee Wei Wen though they recorded a slower time of 4:22.04 after PADE-SuperSharkz and DSAS Swim Club, still managed to contribute to bronze medal.

The girls and boys relay teams

I would like to congratulate all the swimmers who have given their best performance for the three days and salute to all coaches for your outstanding commitment in supporting your swimmers. 

I also would like to thank the team manager Mr Vincent Low, Asst Team Manager Mr Ho and chaperones Mdm Yen Ling and Mdm Zaszima for their support and patience in managing the swim team. Thank you also to Ms Nancy for your good advice and encouragement and to all parents for your full cooperation from Day 1 until the end.
