Double Joy: Welson Sim sends strong warning to SEA Games rivals


Malaysian swimmer Welson Sim sent a strong warning to his SEA Games rivals after producing a stunning performance to clinch two gold medals at the recently concluded Singapore National Age-Group Swimming Championships.

The 19 year-old, who swam at the Rio Olympics last year, won gold in the 200m freestyle event in the 18 year-old and above class with a time of 1:49.27. Singapore’s Yeo Kai Quan finished a close second in 1:49.37 while another Singaporean swimmer Pang Sheng Jun came in third with a time of 1:51.33.

On Saturday, he went on to perform admirably to clinch the 400m freestyle gold in the 18 year-old and above event with a time of 3:52.89. His time was effectively one second quicker than the time he clocked at the 2015 SEA Games – 3:53.97

Perwira Aflah from Indonesia clinched silver in 3:55.88, while Sheng Jun clinched his second bronze of the championship by finishing third with a time of 3:55.91.
