SPORTEXCEL/MILO/NSC/ASUM Junior Swimming Circuit-1st Leg 2016: Report

DSA swim team

The much awaited Sport Excel Milo Meet was held on 23-24 April at Pusat Akuatik Hang Jebat, Melaka, and being the first round of the three leg Meet, swimmers look to gain maximum points to qualify for the Grand Final. The temperature was fair on both days and mildly cloudy.

DSA Swimming Club stood 7th in the overall positions with 842.50 points. Medal winners include Wong Yu Xuan for 100m Butterfly (Silver), who improved 2 seconds from his previous meet timing. This was an unexpected medal and Yu Xuan attributes it to his hard work from training. Sean Goh Min Chang brought home 2 medals (Silver and Gold) while Georgene Wee Ee Jern won 3 medals from the Meet. The participation was not much this year and DSA Coaches will be on their best to motivate swimmers to train harder for the 2nd Leg in order to qualify for Grand Final. More participation and medals are expected from the 2nd Leg scheduled to be held on 28-29 May at Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan, Selangor.
