SE Asian Record Breakers
At a Junior Swimming competition organised by the South East Asia Student Activities Conference (SEASAC) and held at Mont Kiara School in Kuala Lumpur last month, BSJ's 13-14 girls team won four gold medals and broke four records - a first for this age group in the history of the competition.
The new records included a time of 4 minutes and 19.21 seconds in the 4x100m freestyle relay, which beat a 2011 best (also set by BSJ) of 4.27.87.
In the individual events, Elysha Pribadi won five gold medals, breaking SEASAC records for each, while Anna Marfuad took a silver medal in the 200m breastroke.
Elysha was the overall winner for the age group. Her swims, combined with the achievements of Anna and other team members Azra Bakrie and Zoe Albury, meant that the team was victorious too - placing first with 225 points, followed by Tanglin Trust School (150 points) and United World College (UWC) East (135).
In the boys competition, Callum McCombie came second in his age group and set a record in the 50m butterfly. Austin Ho took a bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke.
Overall, the entire BSJ team broke 10 SEASAC records. On combined age-group scores (9-12 and 13-14), the girls came third overall and the boys, ninth.
