On Wednesday the 20th of May a group of 50 Flying Fish swimmers from Years 2-8 represented BISP at the annual Phuket International Schools Swim Meet, this year hosted by Kajonkiet International School. The team did an outstanding job in competing against Headstart, PIA and KIS and managed to take the win for the 2nd year in a row.
The Year 3 (7-8 year old) swimmers started off the afternoon in great form, placing 1st in 6 out of the 8 events. Both the girls and boys relay teams won their races. The Year 4’s were unstoppable and won all their respective events, setting a very high standard for the rest of the year groups.
The Year 5 and 6 boys relay teams were looking exceptionally strong, and put in some awesome swims to place 1st in their races. Well done to Rainer, Pablo and Kai who dominated the year 5 heats. In the Tear 6 division Jazz, Hayden and Titan kept the points rolling in for the team, winning all of their races.
It was then the turn of the senior students who continued the great form despite that all of them were in the middle of their exam week.
Tim and Tilly displayed strong backstroke swims despite the tough competition, and James finished first in his 100m freestyle race. A special mention must go to Kirill in year 4 who swam for the year 8s and did a superb job in his butterfly and backstroke races.
The last event of the swim meet saw the BISP Flying Fish coaches take on the KIS coaches in a very exciting 200m freestyle relay.
The BISP Flying Fish team raked in a total of 420 points to ensure a comfortable win.
Well done to all the swimmers, and thank you to everyone who came including all the coaches and parents who supported our team during this competition. Amazing results!
