6th July, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Aquatic Sports Association (SASA) recently organised a five-day training camp for the selected state Malaysia Games (Sukma) swimmers at the Kota Kinabalu Sports Complex Aquatic Centre and Sutera Harbour Marina Club.

Its president Anthony Kiob said this special training programme was aimed at helping the Perak-bound swimmers to be physically and mentally prepared for the Games.

It was also held to help them strive for high-level performances as well as to promote teamwork and strong spirit among athletes and coaches.

“The training camp was held from June 18-22. We are delighted to note that it went well,” said Kiob. He added that the state coaches will continue to monitor their progress and prop them up for the coming Sukma in September.

According to him, during the camp, the swimmers were exposed to yoga exercise by a yoga instructor; and dryland and gym training conducted by National Sports Institute (ISN) personnel.

Those who participated in the programme were swimmers from Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan and Johore.

They were Hollymax Bell, Isaac Pan, Lo Jun Yi, Kuin Jiu Jun, Gerard Tsen Xiang Zhi, Lai Qian Ying, Chu Xin Ying, Janetty John Fabian, Ilyani Shairah Mohammad, Sharifah Destinee, Lovell Wong Hsiao Thang, Cheng Ka Man, Lo Meng Sum, Loo Yie Bing and Yong Zi Yi.

Kiob also revealed that the state Sukma diving team will also be arranging a one-month intensive training in Negeri Sembilan starting from July 16.

He said the divers, who will be participating in this intensive training, are Julfaddli Bin Jali, Nurfazriyanti Binti Jali and Nur Ain Binti Nadzmi.

“But our national divers, Jellson Jabilin and Gabriel Daim who are the 2017 SEA Games medallists, will continue to do their training with the national squad in Kuala Lumpur before joining the state contingent in Perak,” he said. – FRANCIS XAVIER
