After his victory in the Asian Faldo Golf Series in Vietnam, a student from the British International School, Phuket (BISP) was invited by Sir Nick Faldo to play in a team competition in the USA. No one at his school batted an eyelid at the news.
It seems that BISP is used to such exceptional success. In the same month, another pupil won the China Boys HSBC Open Golf Tournament in Guangzhou by 11 clear strokes, and a single swimmer won 10 Gold medals in the Penang State Championships. More recently, three students took part in the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, one of whom won a gold medal.
