Two national swimmers clinch bronze in Singapore

KUALA LUMPUR, June 16 — Two national swimmers contributed bronze medals for the country through the men’s 1500m freestyle event and the women’s 200m individual medley at the Singapore National Swimming Championships yesterday.

On its official Instagram page, the National Sports Council said national male swimmer Khiew Hoe Yean recorded 15 minutes 45.37s behind Indian swimmer Kushagra Rawat, who won the gold with 15:34.31s, while Ratthawit Thammananthachote of Thailand collected the silver medal with 15: 41.33s.

Meanwhile, the women’s action saw Tan Rouxin recorded 2:21.09s behind two representatives of the host country: Letitia Sim who emerged as the champion with 21:14.80s and Levenia Sim in second place with 2:18.18s.

On Friday (June 14) Khiew managed to garner a gold medal for Malaysia after emerging as the champion of the 400m freestyle event, but the record was not enough for the 21-year-old to qualify for the Paris Olympics.

On that day, another national female swimmer, Phee Jinq En, won the silver medal in the 50m breaststroke event after recording 31.94s.
