Last weekend the KIS Swim team sent a squad specific team to ISB Swimfest, one of the biggest International School swimming event in Thailand with over 1,100 swimmers from AISAA, BISAC, TISAC and other Swim academies attending. At the competition, there was over 100 swimmers competing in each event for the younger age groups and over 60 in the older age groups. Points could only be gained by swimmers for placing in the top 12 (1st – 16 points, 2nd – 13 points, 3rd – 12 points, and so on).
While KIS was not looking to compete directly with the much larger swim academies, we do set our own personal team goals as well as all swimmers trying to beat their PBs times (Personal Best). KIS was able to pick up one medal during the competition as Bujji G3 picked up Silver in the 8&Under Girls 25m Breaststroke. KIS has only ever picked up 2 medals in the previous years. Additionally over 70% of the events swam, KIS students set new PBs and this lead to 26 new School records being set!
This was KIS’s 4th year attending the event and each year our points and place have gotten better with this year being no exception as KIS:
- Finished 10th out of 24
- 2017: 14th out of 22
- 2016: 17th out of 21
- 2015: 17th out of 19
- We scored a total of 161 points
- 2017: 131
- 2016: 64.5
- 2015: 21
If any of you see any of the swimmers who attend, please feel to give them a big Wolves congratulations! GO WOLVES!!!
