The 12th and 13th March 2016 will go down in history of DSA Swim Club, not just as the hottest competition days, with scorching heat of 36 degrees burning skins, but also as the big day when DSA Swim Club stood FIRST! The Champions! DSA Swim Club emerged Overall Champion at the 1st ASUM/NSC/MILO MADWAVE Junior Splash Swim 2016 with a total of 639 points. Now, that’s a day to remember!
The intense heat did drain out swimmers of their best, there was a lot of emotions running high as personal bests were not beaten; but there was indeed a lot to cheer, with Gold medals galore!
Outstanding performances by the Okuzono sisters blazed the 2 days as Yumi and Misa Okuzono took home the Overall Best Swimmer trophies in the Group 3 and Group 4 categories respectively. Georgene Wee took 2 Gold in 100m Free and 50m Breast while Lean Yi Yi and Rio Shirai added more than 40 points each with their many silver and bronze medals in various events.
The relay teams shone bright with the glitter of gold as 11 Golds were harnessed from the many relay events from various groups. Kudos to the relay swimmers, specially to Group 5 and Group 3 Girls taking the Gold in in 4 X 50m Freestyle, 4 X 100m Freestyle and 4 X 50m Medley Relay.
The new LCD scoreboard got a lot of attention from DSA swimmers as their names shone out brightly. Another feature upgraded in the venue was the new finishing touch pads.
Great performance by the young swimmers of DSA Swim Club and it’s all in the bag and the next big event coming up is the Sport Excel First Leg in Melaka where there would be some stiff competition from other clubs. Keep up the training and wishing DSA Swimmers the best in Melaka.
