All three have contributed significant points to BISP Swim Academy’s campaign at the Thailand SC Nationals, where the team finished third overall on points score, and first in average points score, with only 12 swimmers competing in just two days of a three day competition held at the Assumption University Swimming pool in Bangkok, Thailand.
“I am happy with the way we performed up in Bangkok considering we’re still in pre-season training and not focusing on major weeks for another six weeks,” said BISP Swim Academy Head Coach Colin Braund.
“This was more of a training meet for the guys to lift and swim personal best times, and assess where we’re at with our training. They showed a lot of professionalism in their attitude, and now should be looking to build on their performances.” she added.
