Sebastian was thrilled with his achievement and revealed his aspiration.

"I am quite happy with my 1500m free event which I finally attained more than 700 FINA points (703 to be exact). I am looking forward to compete in SUKMA Perak this year and hopefully I can perform even better."

Meanwhile in Negeri Sembilan, Wesley Kam also did his coach proud by emerging as overall champion in the MSSNS Meet in Negeri Sembilan.

Wesley Kam took centre stage in Negeri Sembilan inter-school meet representing Tuanku Jaafar College

Wesley broke the meet record for  200m breaststroke (2:38.53) and 200m IM (2:25.47) even though still tired from the previous competition the week before in KL.

He shared with us his appreciation :

"I am thankful for being awarded the Overall Champion and Best Boy Award by MSSNS.  I wouldn’t be where I am without the dedication and love from my mom, coach and teammates. I am glad that my perseverance has paid off - after hours and hours of training. It was especially hard for me this time around since this competition was right after PRAKL Age Group, so my body was really tired and aching. 

Thank you to all who made my achievements possible. I hope to bring home more medals to make the club proud."

Congratulations and bravo to the IBSC swimmers!
