The 13th and 14th of April were big days for DSA Swimming Club as the team of 208 swimmers filled in the venue at Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan, Shah Alam for the first leg of the prestigious SportExcel/Milo/NSC/ASUM Junior Swimming Circuit 2019. The largest team at the Meet went home with most of the honours as they collected a total of 30 medals, the highest total of the teams but fell short of the Gold medal count to be at the second spot. It was a huge move up from the 7th spot the previous year and was a big result for the young swimmers as they needed to get maximum points in both legs of the Swimming Circuit to make it to the Grand Final.
The swimmers were all at their best with DSA’s young champion Yap Yong Jie making a clean sweep at almost all his 8 events, winning a total of 7 Golds and 1 Silver. He also recorded the second highest individual points in the Boys Category. Brilliant performances by Liew Xiao Rou and Darren Lew Chen Jet gave them also Gold medals to take home while Chong Xin Lin, Ng Yean Yu and Lew Zhi Tong were among the others who added their contributions to the team tally. It was a great start for the large group of young DSA swimmers who had their taste of competitive swimming and now they have to train hard for the second leg to gather the required points. A detailed view of the medals tally is as follows:
