This year was a bit different from last as it was the first time at ISHCMC's new campus and their brand-new indoor pool.

Unfortunately, we had to travel without Coach Alirio, but swim parents and swimmers gave him constant updates and he was sending support to everyone from Phnom Penh. Also a big thank you to Ms Lucy the Bronze coach and our chaperones, Mr Andy and Ms Bissy Groom.

Special mention goes to Natashia Escubil for her outstanding performance in the pool, swimming away with 2 individual silver medals and a bronze medal. She also won 2 extra silver medals from the girls Over 15 relays. This placed her 3rd overall in her age group, well done Natashia!

Next was Sovann Montross with 2 individual medals: 1 silver and 1 bronze. He was also a silver medalist from the 15 and Over medley relay.

Adi Kadyrbek did an amazing job with 2 individual bronze medals. He also added 1 silver medal in the 200m freestyle relay.

Oh Kyoung Park has had a little time away from the pool this season but still managed to take a bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke and was also part of the girls silver medal won in both medley and freestyle relay.  

Our last individual medal was Mikhaela Escubil who won gold in the 800m Freestyle. For our youngest Nagas, the 7-8 yrs old medley relay won silver. Awesome job guys!  

Swimmers, thank you for all your hard work. Parents, thank you for your support. Ms Lucy, Mr Alirio and I are very proud and honoured to be a part of this team.

Go Nagas!
