Young swimmers create new records and win maximum Golds
DSAS Swim Club had a huge reason to cheer and make merry as they emerged overall champions at the 3rd Selangor Novice Swim Meet 2018. Held on 1-2 September at Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan, Shah Alam, Selangor, DSAS had a team of 33 swimmers, and won 31 medals which included 18 Golds.
Besides the top scores, they also made new records at the meet. Marcus Woo Yong Hau created a new record in the 25m Breast stroke, while Lee Zi Xuan created her marks in the 50m Butterfly and 50m Freestyle events. A new record in the Girls11-12yrs 25m Medley relay was the cream on the cake and it was victory all the way for DSAS.
Marcus Woo Yong Hau, the little champ was a huge winner with 6 Golds in his events. Lee Zi Xuan, also with 5 Golds and 2 Silvers is another champion in the making. Hailey Chong Sue Huey and Arthur Chong added more Golds to the tally though it was their very first Meet participation. The other medal winners included Loong Wen Shuen, Tan Yenyi, Lee Zi Ying and Lee Ming Zhou. An additional 4 Golds also came in from the various Relay teams who did a great job in helping the Club win the overall champion position.
Being a Novice Meet, the objective was to provide an opportunity for beginner swimmers aged 12 years old and under to gain competitive exposure at the novice level and to encourage new and young swimmers to participate in competitive swimming. It was a great experience for the upcoming DSAS swimmers who are making great strides in the competition levels. A big round of thanks and hurrahs to the encouragement and support of the parents of the young swimmers and the DSA team coaches cannot be left unsaid. We look for more exciting results and performances in the upcoming grand Meets.
