IMX 2012 - 13
It's time to claim your T Shirt! The IMX programme is designed to reward swimmers who regularly compete and bravely enter a range of events. Being an all-rounder is important as an age group swimmer! Specialising too soon can limit your choices later in your swimming career.
Level 1 – IMX Ready
Level 2 – IMX Extreme
Please note you will receive the T shirt for the highest completed form you submit. A charge of 400THB will be billed to your school account.
Please complete the applicable form based on your age as at August 1st, 2012 and submit on or before June 7th.
Please note we have attended 20+ meets this year so we will not be running extra time trials for swimmers to complete this form. You need to have attended real meets to complete your sheet. This information was posted for 6 weeks on our website throughout Term 1 on our website and also distributed via our e-mail updates.
Not sure what events you've taken part in? Here is a report which lists all the events contested by all TigerSharks this academic year (since August 1st 2012). Tigersharks_Seasonal_Results_Report_SC.pdf
Please note that all times are listed as Short Course actual or converted so that all swims can appear on the same spreadsheet.
PHUKET FLYING FISH INVITATIONAL
A small but enthusiastic team made the trip down to the Flying Fish Invitational hosted by the British International School of Phuket on May 4 - 5. Our team of 7 all posted a good percentage of PB's. The two largest PB's went to Lachlan Dibbayawan (200m IM) and Chloe Burkill (50m Fly), both shaved 33secs from their previous best.
Our medal winners were:
Yoran Van Keer, Farah Van Keer & Chloe Burkill.
Yoran Van Keer had a successful weekend winning an age group trophy for 9 - 10yr Boys.
Another special treat for the swimmers was the presence of Hungarian Olympian, Zsuzsanna Jakabos who was participating in the meet as a part of her training camp in Phuket.
Thank you Coach Chris for attending the meet and a big thank you to the parents who made the trip down to Phuket over the long weekend to support our team. Full_Results_BIS_Flying_Fish_Invitational_2013.pdf
HOT TIMES AT 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS
There were lots of excellent performances in the pool over at Harrow on May 4th for the 7th Annual 2 Fast 2 Furious meet. Patana had 55 swimmers in attendance. This 25m sprint meet is a great chance for our youngsters to gain valuable racing experience in a friendly meet whilst our older swimmer had their eyes on a few long standing PTS 25m records which were due for a shake up.
Congratulations Klang Jatusripitak (1) and Chris Lo (3) who broke PTS SC Records at the meet.
A big thank you to the parents who braved the heat and humidity to cheer on the team with enthusiasm.
