Swimming Success

This year’s Inter International Schools Swimming Championships saw lots of great performances by our swimmers, with fourteen winning points for the school in individual events.   Maya Weerasinghe won Silver in her three events and Tiffany Johnpulle also finished in the top 3 in all her races.  Samantha Tappin and Ramudi Samarasekera placed in all their events as well.  The Over 16 Girls again led the way in the relays, finishing 2nd in both Medley and Freestyle, a fitting finale for Vinati Molligoda in her last year.

The week before, we had hosted a friendly meet against Colombo International School and the British School in Colombo at the new 50 metre pool at the Sri Lankan Air Force base in Ratmalana.  We expect this to become a regular fixture in the Swimming calendar for both Junior and Senior School swimmers, with two more schools attending in future as well.  This will give the students the chance to compete solely against the schools who have been our closest competitors in the main Inter International Schools meet.

Earlier in the term, the Junior School held another very successful Inter House Swimming meet, with several records being broken.  The current Junior 5 class has raised standards massively, with five members of the class posting excellent times, which bodes very well for the future.
