On 22-23 May BIS Phuket Flying Fish swimming club hosted its 2nd annual and lively competition in the school’s 8-lane 50-meter long course pool for around 330 participants from 18 different clubs from across Thailand and Asia. The boys and girls, mostly aged from just under 8 up to just over 15, competed in 68 events, with many competing in several events, so there were over 1800 entries in over 260 heats! The host team has really taken off this year, under their new coaches Cyrus Crews and Meitri Pangestika, but on this occasion they came 2nd overall with 1,139 points and 30 medals, finishing behind Orchid Country Club with 1,549 points and 66 medals.

Marcus

The top boy was Josh Hardess, 8 years old, from Orchid Country Club with 120 points, while the top girl was Bianca Goetz, 15, from BIS Phuket Flying Fish also with 120 points. Bianca told NBT TV Phuket that “I love racing in this sport and meeting new people, going around country and overseas”; she already represents Singapore or Germany, her parents’ countries, and recently won a contest in Tokyo in Japan; her goal is to get to the Olympics in 2012, to be held in London; her younger brother Marcus also took part in 3 events here and hopes to follow her sister’s ‘swim-steps’.

Dietmar Heinz

One of the BIS parents, Dietmar Heinz, told Phuketindex, that his 12 year old son Andy, who finished 7th overall with 102 points, had recently won contests in longer events in Bangkok and Singapore. He said the BIS event was well organised as the school management and team improved with backing & help by many parents;
“This is our 1st event with the new coach Cyrus Crews who has definitely done a fantastic job in a big fast event. It’s a huge success that other teams find it attractive to come here; there may have been some mistakes in the meet; but as the 1st under this management, it will get better, until perfect.”

Dr George Hickman, Headmaster of BIS

Dr George Hickman, Headmaster of BIS, told Phuketindex: “it was a wonderful event with 18 schools & clubs here and no cancellations, despite the troubles in Bangkok, so we were delighted to have so many students competing. Our school did fine and I’m always proud of our quite impressive organisers.” They were helped by timekeepers from Rajaphat University.

Safety was also important, so they used lightning meters to warn of dangerous strikes that nearly came with Saturday’s rain storms; they took the students out of the water into the sports hall, so no chances were taken.
Many international adults, including national Olympic teams, have also come to train at the BIS pool in the last 6-7 years; Dr George hopes BIS Flying Fish students also swim on to represent Thailand or their own countries around the world, perhaps in future Olympics.
