Blue Marlin Swimming Club emerged as champions of the inaugural Sabah Golf and Country Club Interclub U-12 Swimming Championship 2009, with 27 gold, 34 silver and 18 bronze medals.

Second was Kota Kinabalu Swimming Association with 22 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze medals, while Gymkhana Club from Miri, Sarawak, finished in third place with 15-13-14.

Shelavia Lo Meng Sum was the biggest contributor to BMSC's gold medal tally. She won 7 gold and 1 silver medal in the Girls Group 4 (10 years old) Individual events.

Baveliana Wong Siew Yee was also a major contributor winning 6 gold and 2 silver medals for BMSC in the Girls Group 5 (11 years old) Individual events, while Michelle Yong Fui Teng won 6 gold and 1 silver in the Girls Group 2 (8 years old) events.

The other BMSC gold medals were won in various medley and relay events.

The championship, which was held from October 17-18, saw a total of 231 swimmers taking part, including some very young individuals.

Among them were four-year-olds Lai Cheng Hau and Ericsson Bong Chong Loong and five-year-olds Reza Hanafi bin Noor Azmi, Hannah Sarshar, Gai Ueno and Eric Bong Cheng Liang.

Among the highlights of the championship was the Boys U-7 25m Medley Relay where Sutera Harbour Marina, Golf and Country Club's Aaron Ho Hun En, 7, Reza Hanafi Noor Azmi, 7, Reza Hafizi Noor Azmi, 5, and Zachary Marc Yap, 7, bagged the gold medals.

Meet Director, CS Tan said that the championship was a success due to the strong support from the volunteers (the parents and adult swimmers) who are non-members of SGCC.

"Though initially under financial constraint, we managed to receive funds and support from Aquatic Sabah Management Committee, Milo, Veda Blue Ice Cream, Kimanis Food and Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific, which made the event a success," he said.

Tan would also be submitting an application to the Malaysia Book of Records for the youngest competitive swimmer in a championship and for SGCC as the first club to organise a competitive event hosting the youngest competitor.

A total of 10 teams took part in the championship, including Penampang Swimming Association, Sandakan Swimming Association, Labuan Aquatic Association and Panaga Stingrays Club from Brunei.
