It was a warm sunny day that greeted the thirteen swimmers from DSA Swim Team who had the privilege of being among the top 24 finalists for the Sport Excel-Milo NSC-ASUM Junior Swimming Circuit 2014 Grand Final. The team was accompanied by Head Coach, Daniel Lim, Coach Gerad Goh and the great company of doting parents and well-wishers.
Though our team was small as compared to the previous years, they performed well obtaining a team total of 44 points and won 9 medals. Ten of the swimmers qualified for the finals held during the post lunch sessions on both days.
The medal winners for the team were
|CHRISTY TEH, XING TI||11-12 yrs Girls||35||3 Gold (50m Bk, 100m Bk,
1 Silver (100m Free)
1 Bronze (50m Free)
|SEAN GOH MIN CHANG||11-12 yrs Boys||26||2 Gold (50m Br, 100m Br)

The other swimmers for the team were Georgene Wee, Chong Hey Sheen, Alyssa Yong, Lim Shun Qi, Chong Kar Hian, Lim Ziwin, Wong Weng Xuan, Wong Yu Hao, Evon Chan, Tan Kai En and Branson Wee.
Christy is continuing her tremendous form and her wins were impressive especially in 100m backstroke, beating the second place by nearly 5 seconds. Sean is also developing his performance substantially. He was looking very strong in his favourite event the 100m breaststroke, beating the second place by over 2 seconds. The team is now preparing well for the oncoming President’s Cup coming up in the month of November. The training schedule is now held on weekends also during the morning hours and we are sure the hard efforts of team coaches will bear great results at the meet.
