Eight swimmers from the BISP JSA Swim Academy, based at British International School, Phuket (BISP), have been selected to represent their country at the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Age Group Swimming Championships in Danang, Vietnam from 4-6 December.
The swimmers are Nicholle Toh and Chantal Liew of Singapore; Raine Gavino, Jeremy Lim and Courtney Gray of the Philippines; and Eric Tan, Yap Siew Hui and Wong Fu Kang of Malaysia.
The BISP JSA Swim Academy has placed increasing numbers of athletes on respective national teams at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Age Group Swimming Championships over the past three years, and this is a great reflection on the program’s ability to nurture and cater for athletes from multiple nations, racing multiple events and distances, all under one holistic programs roof.
Academy Head Coach Simon Jones said, “This year we have eight national team selections with a number of medal hopefuls at the [SEA Age Group] championships. It’s been a very solid start to the season with more volume and quality completed in training than previous years, and it’s exciting to see what our new generation of swimmers can achieve early on this season. I’m sure they will represent both their countries and BISP well.”
