This year KLASS Torpedoes travelled with a very small squad of 14 very
excited swimmers to Hong Kong and the Canadian International School (CDNIS).
We knew that with only 14 our team point score wouldn't be high but we
had very high expectations for the individual events and these were certainly
matched by strong performances from all 14!
Our twitter feed through the weekend summarises events as they happened
at @KLASS_Sport but a brief summary is below:-
- 7 different individual
medalists: Stephen Weller, Jamila Abdel-Razak, Jack Leetham, Oliver
Weller, Oliver Schnitker, Owen Allwood and Matthew Trott.
- 11-12 boys

the 11-12 boys 50m fly

I should also say that in the 6 years I have taken KLASS Torpedoes teams
to SEASAC, this is the largest number of individual event medallists we have
had. This includes 2011 when we had Ben Proud, Ji Hoon Sherk, Mirthe Hofstede,
Aniq Maricar and Hendrik Faber in the team.
It is also the first time we have won age group having been runners up 4
The whole team were awesome. A credit to the school, parents and
