NATIONAL synchronised swimmer Jacqueline Lim clinched a bronze medal at the 92nd Japan Synchronised Swimming Championships Open in Tokyo last weekend.
A press release issued by the Brunei Amateur Swimming Association (BASA) yesterday stated that there were nine countries competing at the April 29-May 1 tournament which serves as one of the preliminary meets leading up to the Rio Olympics in August.
It was a tough competition as Team Brunei was up against the giants of synchronised swimmings such as Australia, Canada and Great Britain – to name a few. “We are proud of Jacqueline’s achievement as she has in the process improved on her performance by two points in the technical solo event,” said BASA President Aziz Latip.
“This will spur her on to set her sights at next year’s SEA Games. “We will continue to expose our swimmers to international meets to gain valuable experience,” he added.
Also competing for Brunei was Nur Hafizah Ahmad. The team was led by coach/manager Nur Anna Muin.
