This article is brought to you in part by Australian International School, Malaysia (AISM).
It was yet another fantastic finish for AISM as 12 students represented the school at the annual Biathlon held at Garden International School. The event consisted of teams of four, with the school entering one team in the Under 9 category and two teams in the Under 11 category.
The Under 9 team, Eliza Tan, Shin Yi Pan, Rafael Drummond Costa, and Jin Ho Ju, performed amazingly well in both the pool and on the track events eventually winning gold for their combined times. It was a fantastic effort against multiple teams from other international schools across Kuala Lumpur.
In the Under 11 category, both teams performed very well with the team comprising Yin Jenn Goh, Anna Huggel, Brayden Gorbach and Euan Kniesz achieving a very respectable seventh place against a large field of teams.
Unfortunately, the time obtained by the other Under 11 team of Manami Kuno, Darcy Stevens, Flynn McCarthy Wallace and Tane Dolan wasn’t counted due to the structure of the team. However,they performed exceptionally well and had an excellent experience.
Congratulations to all the individual competitors and the teams, especially the Under 9s on their fantastic achievement.
