Thurs 9th - Sun 12th March
Pusat Akuatik Hang Jebat, Melaka
This is the pinnacle of the National Age Group swimming calendar. This year KLASS Torpedoes were able to achieve 24 selections for 21 different swimmers for 3 different states which is the most we have achieved. When you also take into account that 2 of our HPS squad are current seconded to the Malaysian National Squad and were racing at the Singapore National Age Groups the same weekend. This is further demonstration of the strength of KLASS Torpedoes.
Of these 6 KLASS swimmers and 2 HPS swimmers, medaled were Gioia Migliarina (KL), Aisha Burley (KL), Sadie Gordon (KL), Owen Allwood (KL), Falk Meier (KL), Matthew Trott (KL), Chan Yang (HPS)(Selangor) and Bryan Leong (HPS)(Selangor). The other swimmer to compete were: Yi-Lin Cheah (Selangor), Raoul Bromley (Selangor), Anna Meier (KL), Natalie Cheong (HPS)(Negri Sembilan), Olivia Cheong (HPS)(Negri Sembilan).
Not competing: Chan Jie (HPS & NTS)(Selangor), Jian Han Tern (HPS & NTS)(Johor), Jeff Kloos (KL), Rebecca Wood (Selangor)
These are amazing individual achievements for our dedicated KLASS swimmers and further demonstrate the year on year improvement the team is making. I was particularly pleased to see 2 JB swimmers qualify and delighted when one of them won medals. This is something unprecedented at JB. We also are proud to have national champions on our roster in Sadie Gordon and Chan Yang (HPS).
All in all an amazing end to a very busy representative season. Well done to all.
