At the recent Malaysian International Age Group Swimming Championships 2018, ASUM launched the Malaysian Swimming All Star Program. The initiative has been designed to recognise and encourage our high achieving junior swimmers. Too often only our medal winners are recognised at the junior level and it is important to reward and motivate those athletes who may not yet be physically ready to challenge for medals but are still swimming fast times.
The All Star Qualifying standards were set for each event and each age group. The standards are expected to be roughly equal to a top 10 performance in the races. All swimmers that exceeded the qualifying times qualified to be a Malaysian All Star and received a certificate and All Star swim cap to recognise their achievement.
We will be continuing the All Star Program next year an we hope the program will continue to inspire our hardworking athletes to continue to train hard.
All Star Swimmers by state :
Selangor (45) , Kuala Lumpur (42), Sabah (22), Penang (22), Johor (14), Melaka (13), Sarawak (8), Perak (4), Negeri Sembilan (1), Pahang (1), Terengganu (1),
ASUM congratulates all swimmers for the great achievement.
