KOTA KINABALU: Sabah divers returned home with one gold, one silver and four bronze medals from the 53rd Malaysia National Age Group Aquatic Championship 2017 that was held at the Negeri Sembilan Aquatic Centre from April 14 to 16.

Nurfazriyanti Jali clinched Sabah’s only gold medal in the championship after winning the 3M springboard in the Group A category (16-18 years old).

She also won one bronze medal in the platform event. Julfaddli Bin Jali won silver in the platform event and settled for two bronze medals in 1M and 3M springboard in the Group B category (14 and 15 years old).

The remaining bronze was contributed by Nur Ain Binti Nadzmi in Group A in 1M springboard.

The Sabah Aquatic Sports Association (SASA) paraded a team of seven divers to the three-day championship, hosted by Negeri Sembilan Amateur Swimming Association.

About 50 divers representing six teams, including Uzbekistan, were in the fray.

The rest of the participating teams were Negeri Sembilan, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur. The Sabah contingent was led by team manager Anjelica Simpul, judge James Sandayud and coach Khairul Safwan Bin Mansur.

SASA president Anthony Kiob was pleased with the junior divers who did well in the competition.

He said this outing has helped them gain good exposure at a national competition. “Lots of hard work and commitment from the coaches and the divers, and I hope they will continue to work hard and achieve greater results in the near future,” he said.

Anthony also thanked the Sabah Sports Council (SSC) for their continuous support and financial assistance given for all Sabah aquatic sports including swimming and diving.

He also thanked the Sabah Sports Board (SSB) for the training facilities for divers currently being installed at the complex.

He also hopes that more officials will be trained as judges to overcome the shortage of diving judges from Sabah.
