Moves up to 2nd spot, just 5 points away from top at MILO/Sport Excel 2017
DSA Swim Team made a great step forward as the Team finished as the runner-up just 5 points short of beating the champions at the NSC/Milo/Sport Excel Junior Swimming Circuit – Grand Final held at the Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras pool on the 12-13th August.
Yap Yong Jie and Darren Lew Chen Jet led the Team with top honours breaking 5 Meet records between them. They were also the Best Boys in their respective Groups. Both of them brought back 4 Golds each in their events. Koh Teck Chen won 2 more Golds to add to his collection while 1 Gold each was added to the team by Georgene Wee Ee Jern and Liam Eu Li-An. It was a significant achievement for the Team to reach the second spot of the yearly Circuit Championship and that leaves only a couple of more Meets in the Calendar as the year draws to a close. The Team must not gear up for the most important Meet of the Calendar, The President Cup scheduled for late November.
