Harrow Hong Kong’s swimming stars saw success in the pool at the recent Tuen Mun District Secondary School Championships.
The School’s pupils picked up no less than 11 medal results across the two days of competition (3-4 October), which were held at Tuen Mun Swimming Centre’s professional outdoor Olympic-sized set-up amid challenging and very hot conditions for the competitors.
Harrow Hong Kong’s swimmers ranged from Year 5 up to Year 13, with Ryan (Year 10, Peel) claiming a podium double with gold in the 200m Freestyle and silver in the 100m Backstroke.
Further impressive individual performances resulted in silver medals for Ethan (Year 11, Churchill) in the 50m Breaststroke, Singha (Year 13, Sun) in the 200m Freestyle, Tommy (Year 9, Sun) in the 200m Breaststroke.
Angela (Year 7, Parks) picked up two bronze medals in the 100m Backstroke and 50m Breaststroke, with Annie (Year 12, Gellhorn) achieving the same feat in the 200m Breaststroke and 200m Freestyle.
A team effort in the medley relays yielded further success with silver in the Girls C Medley (Tasman, Angela, Margaux, Eve, Kaman [reserve]) and bronze in the Boys C Medley (Andrew, Henry, Ethan, Angus, Jessy [reserve])
The Girls C grade team were crowned champions, with the Boys C placing fourth. Overall Harrow Hong Kong finished fourth in the Girls Championship and sixth in the Boys event.
Harrow Hong Kong’s Head of Swimming, Malcolm Greene, commented: “It was a great experience for the younger swimmers to be able to watch and learn from the senior students. Harrow was certainly the loudest and best supported team too.
“I do hope that we can improve on our performance in next year’s competition. Thank you to parents and staff who helped with the extra administration that was involved in entering this competition.”
