Our crazy swim team did it again! We won the 53rd Penang State Age Group for the 6th year in the row – the Chief Minister Challenge Trophy for the most gold medals – 61 and the PASA President’s Challenge trophy for the most points – 1836.
This swim competition was held at Chinese Swimming Club over the weekend – 10, 11 and 12 February. It was an extremely exhausting weekend, but the swimmers did their best. They made every point count and every one contributed to the team’s overall success.
It was a close fight, but we did not give up in despair. On Sunday morning, after an exhausting two days, the team was confronted with the fact that Chinese Swimming Club (CSC) was ahead of us by almost 100 points and we tied for gold medals. Well, everyone took a deep breath and did not give up – we pushed ahead and made up for the lost points. We finished almost 100 points ahead overall – helped by some Meet Records, Penang State Group Records and a strong showing in the relays. Well done everyone!!
A big THANK YOU to our Coaches – Coach Heng, Lee Chek and Coach Liu; our swimmers; the Section Committee; the parents and supporters; and not least the Main Committee of our Club who have supported and helped us all the way. Without you, we would not have achieved this success.
