At the 5th Singapore National Short Course Championships held over the holidays, BISP JSA Swim Academy member and Year 13 student Chantal Liew was in promising form, breaking the Academy 50m Back Record on Day 1 by swimming 29.22, placing 2nd, whilst also racing the 800m Free, also placing second in a new PB of 9:01.07.

Chantal then swam two fantastic races on the final day of competition, winning two silvers in the process and breaking two more Academy records. First up, she blasted a 1min 02.55 in the 100m Backstroke to break the old record by almost 0.5 of a second, and then followed this up with a 5 second drop in the 400m Freestyle posting a 4min 23.32.
