All Dragons swimmers put in 100% effort and did amazingly over the 2 days of intense racing. We came 5th the girls category with total 15 gold (of which 9 were SEASAC Records), 10 silvers and 10 bronze. The highlights of the meet were:
– The Under 15 Boys relays where they were unbeatable for all the 4 relays as well as breaking the SEASAC records. On top of that, they were also the Under 15 Boys Team Champion.
– The 12 and Under Girls were 3rd overall.
– Howard Sim broke 2 SEASAC records in the 50 and 100m Breaststroke while Zoe Bowden broke 1 SEASAC record in the 200m Back
– Anjali Lim and Mia O’Leary each broke 1 SEASAC record in the 200m Breaststroke and 50m Breaststroke overall in the boys category and 7th
The competition was a tiresome yet astonishing four days for us; we socialized with peers from other schools, took part in races, and improved our personal records.
The first day of the competition kicked off at 5am when we got up, all prepared for the long day ahead. Most of us were complaining about how early we had to wake up, but we considered ourselves fortunate compared to other schools who had to awake half an hour earlier. After digging into our breakfast, we boarded the bus and soon arrived at BIS Jakarta. Throughout the events of the first day, we were doing fabulous, and at the end of the day our amazing swimmers already broke 5 SEASAC records. After a tiresome first day, we returned to the hotel where we relaxed, had a meal and went to bed, after enjoying some free time.
The second day was very similar, except that we completed all our races and had the opportunity to enjoy ourselves. Prior to enjoying, we attended a gala dinner at the school, where the final presentation took place. After the gala dinner, the kids enjoyed the disco party organized by BIS.
