BISP Swim Team Win 29 Medals at Malaysian National Age Group Championships

The swimmers in the British International School, Phuket BISP JSA Swim Academy won a total of 29 medals at the recently concluded Malaysian National Age Group Championships: 7 gold , 9 silver, and 12 Bronze.

Led by Performance Coach Colin Braund, as Head Coach Simon Jones was with other members of the academy at the Thailand National Championships in Bangkok, the squad also racked up 14 personal best times, and two BISP JSA Swim Academy records: Hendrik Faber in the 400m Free with a 4.08.61 and Wong Fu Kang in the 100 Free in a 52.70.

Coach Braund says, “It has been a tough couple of weeks for some of the swimmers, who only recently returned from the Singapore National Age Group Championships with some sterling performances, so to continue to improve is a very positive sign.

“We’ll be looking to build on our success, and turn some of those 4th places into medals, on our return for the Malaysia Open Championships next month.”

Head Coach Simon Jones adds, “Off the back of some good performances in Singapore two weeks ago it was important to see that we were able to hold the taper through to the Malaysian Age champs and continue in personal best and record breaking form.

“That said, there is still work to do to hit the kind of form that we are aiming for by the start of the summer.”
