The hot and sunny weather were great for swimming in the morning and all our swimmers put in a great 100% effort over the hard competition and we finished with 5 golds, 4 silvers and 3 bronze medals overall.
Of our many swimmers who participated in this competition, a few stood out winning many medals despite the stiff competition. They are Zoe Bowden, Howard Sim, Bradley Lim, Cian Goon and Riki Nakajima.
All in all it was a very successful outing for GIS emerging 2nd overall for the boys category and 5th for the girls category.
All swimmers should be given a pat on their back for the outstanding effort put in. Also a big thank you to parents who took time off to support the team in Bangkok. Their support is invaluable.
