BISP swim team breaks records in show of style

At the recent Thailand Short Course Swimming Championships 2016, held over October 1 to 3 at Assumption University’s Aquatic Centre in Bangkok, the BISP Swim Academy from British International School, Phuket (BISP) finished third overall on points scored, but first in average points scored, with only 12 swimmers competing in just two days of a three-day competition.

The championships were the selection trials for the Thai national team for the 13th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) which will be held over December 6 to 11 in Windsor, Ontario.

Three BISP Swim Academy records (and personal bests) were broken at the meet, namely: Raine Gavino in the 200 Breaststroke with 2.32.36; Hendrik Faber in the 400 Freestyle with 3.59.41; and Kimiko Raheem in the 100 Backstroke with 1.02.47. Kimiko has already been pre-selected by the Sri Lankan national team for the World Short Course Championships.

“I am happy with the way we performed up in Bangkok considering we’re still in pre-season training and not focusing on major weeks for another six weeks,” says BISP Swim Academy Head Coach Colin Braund.

“This was more of a training meet for the guys to lift and swim personal best times, and assess where we’re at with our training. They showed a lot of professionalism in their attitude, and now should be looking to build on their performances.”

Elsewhere in Asia, the BISP Swim Academy’s Nicholle Toh broke three more Academy records at the Beijing leg of the FINA World Cup series, where she was representing her home nation of Singapore, in the 50 Butterfly (27.78), 100 Butterfly (1.01.02), and 200 Butterfly (2.15.76). After the racing in Beijing, she was to continue on to the Dubai then Doha legs of the FINA World Cup, before returning back to BISP to continue training. In November, she will be competing for Singapore at the 10th Asian Swimming Championships in Tokyo.

“It’s invaluable for her to gain international competitive experience at these types of events,” says Head Coach Braund about Toh’s recent meets, “especially for such a young swimmer, with Nicholle having only just turned 15. Her recent races in Hawaii, China and the Middle East will stand her in good stead for the upcoming Asian swim championships in Tokyo.”
