Int’l challenge for two Sabah teen swimmers

6th July, 2018

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: Two budding Sabah swimmers will be part of the national teams for two separate international championships this month.

Chu Xin Ying and Janetty John Fabian have been selected by the national selectors for their impressive displays at national level championships recently.

Sabah Aquatic Sports Association (SASA) president, Anthony Kiob, said Xin Ying has been selected by the Amateur Swimming Union of Malaysia (ASUM) after beating the qualifying mark.

He said the 13-year-old Xin Ying will be part of the Malaysian 27-member squad that will take part in the 42nd South East Asia (SEA) Age Group Swimming Championship 2018 in Laguna, Philippines, from today until July 8.

He added that Xin Ying will be taking part in all her freestyle events (100m, 200m, 400m and 800m), and 200m breaststroke in the meet.

As for Janetty, Kiob said, the 14-year-old swimmer will represent Malaysia in the 10th Asian School Games (ASG) that will be held in Shah Alam, Selangor from July 19-27.

Janetty will be competing in one event, which is her pet event, the 50m backstroke. “She (Janetty) made it into the national team through her merit result in the MSSM (Majlis Sukan Sekolah Malaysia) swimming championship.

“On behalf of the association, I would like to congratulate both of them for making it into the national team, and I hope that they will give their best in the meets,” said Kiob.

Kiob also hoped that the duo’s selection into the national team would help to motivate others to strive harder in training as well as to encourage more youngsters to take up swimming.

He also thanked the Youth and Sports Ministry, National Sports Council Sabah and ASUM for their continuous support and opportunities given for aquatic sports of Sabah all these years.

He also extended his appreciation to all the dedicated swimming and diving coaches who have been working tirelessly with their swimmers and divers.
