The just ended summer holiday was anything but a break for two of our outstanding BISP swimmers, Jaidee and Duana. These young athletes showcased their immense talent and dedication by competing at prestigious national and international swimming events.

IMG 3215Year 9 student Jaidee displayed his remarkable swimming talent at the Swiss Nationals. After an impressive performance at the Thai Nationals in April, Jaidee continued his rigorous training to prepare for the Swiss Nationals in mid-July. His hard work paid off as he qualified for multiple events, including the 200m Free, 200m IM, 400 Free, 100 Breast, and 200 Breast. In these challenging competitions, Jaidee secured top positions, earning second place in the 200m Free, 200m IM, and 100 Breast, as well as a commendable third place in the 400 Free. 

His accomplishments reflect his dedication and skill, making the BISP community incredibly proud. To further enhance his training, Jaidee had the opportunity to train with Coach James Goddard at Wellington College in Bangkok for three weeks. This valuable experience will undoubtedly contribute to his future success, and we extend our gratitude to Coach James for his support.
