The International School’s Sports Association of Phnom Penh launches its swimming campaign with the first of five events slated for the Northbridge pool this Saturday
Warm-up laps will begin at 7.30am, with races continuing throughout the morning and an awards ceremony expected to conclude by 11am.
Male and female students from iCAN, Hope, ISPP, Logos and Northbridge international schools will compete across four age categories – U9, U11, U13, and U18 – in races including 50-metre freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke as well as individual and team mixed medley relays and relays in freestyle and breaststroke.
There will be two heats for each race division, with graded points available for the top finishers to be tabulated over the season. “Fun” heats will also be held for those wishing to swim without having their times recorded.
Other events scheduled are December 13 at the Cambodian Country Club, January 31 at Olympic Stadium pool, March 21 at ISPP and May 8 at the same venue.
A special meet at ISPP on November 29 will see Phnom Penh students race against their international school counterparts based in Vietnam and Thailand, and potentially other countries. Results will not affect the league statistics.
