The Star : Welson shows he’s ready for Asian Games after Europe high

PETALING JAYA: Swimmer Welson Sim (pic) showed he is ready for a splashing time at the Asian Games in Indonesia in August following good results in the just concluded Mare Nostrum Series in Europe.

Sarawak-born Welson bagged two silver medals for Malaysia in the middle distance freestyle events in the final leg of the series in Monaco.

Welson posted 3:52.37 for his first silver medal in the men’s 400m freestyle final behind Norway’s Henrik Christiansen, who came out tops in 3:51.07.

Interestingly, a potential Asian Games rival Takeda Shogo of Japan finished fourth (3:54.64) behind third-placed Jeremy Bagshaw of Canada (3:53.66).

Welson holds the national record of 1:47.36 for the 200m freestyle and 3:49.48 for the 400m distance.

Welson bagged a bronze medal in the 200m freestyle final in the second leg of the series in Barcelona, Spain two weeks ago.

The Malaysian swimmers did not take part in the first leg in Canet, France.

“Welson had some good racing against an extremely strong field as usual in the Mare Nostrum,” said swimming coach Paul Birmingham.

“These next six weeks of training will be crucial for him before we go to the Asian Games,”

Welson, a double gold medallist at the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games last year, was not the only Malaysian making an impact in the much competitive European swim meet.

Keith Lim did well to set a new national mark in the men’s 50m freestyle event in Monaco.

Keith clocked 23.10 to break the previous national mark of 23.17 in the short sprint race held by Alwyn Tan since 2015. Keith’s effort saw him ranked 13th overall.

Tern Jian Han finished eighth in the men’s 50m backstroke (26.62) and seventh in the 100m distance (58.00).

Rio Olympian swimmer Phee Jinq En finished 10th in the women’s 100m breaststroke final (1:09.31).

The Star Online : Pandela bags Malaysia’s first individual diving World Cup medal

PETALING JAYA: Pandelela Rinong (pic) made her way into the history books as Malaysia’s first individual medallist at the FINA Diving World Cup in Wuhan, China after a superb comeback in the women’s 10m platform individual competition.

The two-time Olympic medllist only managed to qualify for the semi-finals after finishing 12th in the preliminary round on Tuesday (June 5).

But Pandelela got her act right when it mattered most. The 25-year-old bounced back strongly by finishing third in the top-18 semi-finals with 347.15 points behind China’s Ren Qian (360.55) and Zhang Jiaqi (371.10).

Pandelela continued with her steady display in the final held in the evening.

The two impressive efforts helped Pandelela to nail the bronze medal with her total of 349.15 points.

The Chinese duo were a class above the rest of the 12 finalists as reigning Olympic champion Ren Qian settled for silver with 403.85 points.

Zhang Jiaqi, only 14, secured her first major international victory with 427.30 points.

Pandelela has a bright chance to claim a second medal in Wuhan when she returns to the pool to partner Jun Hoong for the women’s 10m platform synchro event.

The duo are the reigning silver medallist from the 2016 Rio Olympics and gold medallist at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April.

NST : Welson swims ‘slow’ to his third Malaysian Open gold

By Jumiati Roslyju – May 6, 2018 @ 9:50pm

KUALA LUMPUR: A shoulder injury did not stop swimmer Welson Sim from winning his third gold medal on the final day of the Malaysian Open in Bukit Jalil on Sunday.

The Sarawakian clocked a ‘slow’ 16:18.35s for the 1,500m freestyle gold to add to the 200m and 400m freestyle he won earlier.

It is a mediocre time considering that Welson had clocked his personal best of 15:28.00 in March.

Kuala Lumpur’s Wong Jun Bin (16:19.93) won silver, followed by Sabah’s Wong Venn Chieh (16:39.49).

“I did not push myself as I did not want to aggravate my shoulder problem,” said Welson.

Johor’s Wong Fu Kang won the 50m breaststroke in 28.76. “I may have won but I am not happy as I failed to break my national record (28.59),” said Fu Kang.

Hong Kong emerged as overall champions with 20 gold, eight silver and two bronze, followed by Selangor (7-11-9) and Johor (4-5-4).

The Star : Pandelela gives season-best show to reach individual final

KUALA LUMPUR: Pandelela Rinong (pic) served a surprise by qualifying for the women’s 10m platform individual final in the Diving World Series finale in Kazan, Russia.

Pandelela gave a season-best display to finish second in the first semi-final group yesterday, thus earning a place in the top-six final.

Pandelela posted 72.00, 62.35, 67.20, 78.40 and 76.80 to finish with 356.75 points.

North Korea’s Kim Mi-rae scored 359.65 points to top the first semi-final contest.

Russian Iuliia Timoshinina grabbed the last ticket from the first semi-final group with 351.10 points.

The top three divers from each semi-final grouping make the cut for the final and there was a shock as China’s Si Yajie, the world champion in 2013, missed the cut.

Si Yajie finished fourth after fumbling in her fourth dive, earning 52.80 for a total of 340.80 points.

Si Yajie combined with Lin Shan to win gold in the 10m platform synchro event on Friday.

Pandelela is the only Malaysian representative after reigning world champion Cheong Jun Hoong managed fifth with 296.10 points.

Pandelela partnered Jun Hoong to take bronze in the 10m platform synchro event on Friday, capping a perfect end to their campaign in the prestigious series.

Pandelela will have to be at her best to end her medal drought in the individual final.

Besides Mi-rae, the Sarawak-born diver will have to fight it out with reigning Olympic champion Ren Qian of China, Gold Coast Commonwealth Games champion Melissa Wu of Australia and another North Korean Kim Kuk-hyang, the world champion in 2015.

Ren Qian qualified first from the second semi-final group (361.35) ahead of Melissa (358.60) and Kuk-hyang (350.90).

“It is a high-quality final field with Olympic and world championship winners present.

“If Pandelela can stay consistent, there is a chance to get a medal,” said coach Zhang Yukun.
