Strength & Conditioning Workshop for Swimmers

The Swimming Section Committee is pleased to organised this workshop for all Swimming Section members. For anyone who swims, whether for leisure or competitively, learning how your body works and what you can do to make it stronger and more effective is always helpful.

Our speaker, Dr. Victor S Selvanayagam completed his first degree in Sports Science and Master’s degree in Medical Science (Exercise Physiology) at the University of Malaya (UM). He received his PhD from The University of Queensland in the area of Neuroscience where he focused on identifying early neural responses to strength training.

His main research focuses on the contribution of the nervous system to strength gains by incorporating well-explored motor learning paradigms to strength training. Victor, who is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning specialist (CSCS), is currently a Senior Lecturer with the Sports Centre, University of Malaya and teaches courses such as Exercise Physiology and Exercise Testing and Prescription in the Health Sciences.

He is a member of the Society of Neuroscience and President of the Malaysian Strength and Conditioning Association (MSCA).  Together with MSCA and Sports Centre, Victor has been advocating the importance of Physical Conditioning for everyone.

Among the exciting seminar topics covered in 2017 include Physical Conditioning for Children: Impact on Development and Performance, Physical Conditioning for Older Persons: Challenging the Neuromuscular System and Applying Research Findings into Soccers Conditioning.

As an athlete, he was the captain of the National Junior athletics team and currently competes at the Masters level. Victor also plays a supervisorial role in research areas such as fatigue, muscle damage and strength training, all focusing on the contribution of the central nervous system.

Penang State Age Group – PASA 2017

53-pasa-official-results-2017

img_4637Our 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.

It has been a busy summer…

 

We have had a busy summer. Over the course of two months, we have had swimmers attend:

(a) SUKMA 2016 in Sarawak

(b) the 12th SICC Swimming Championships in Singapore

(c) Milo/NSC/SportExcel Grand Final in Kuala Lumpur

Next week, we are off to the Selangor Short Course and that will be our last meet until the President’s Cup in November…. It will be back to intensive training for the next few months to up our game for November.

Well done to all our medalists and swimmers who have improved their personal best times. It goes to show that commitment during training every day will lead to improvements during the meets.
