NANJING, Aug 18 (Bernama) -- National swimmers failed to make a splashing performance when the Youth Olympic Games YOG 2014 swimming competitions started at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre Natatorium, here today.
Lim Ching Hwang and Welson Sim Wee Sheng who saw action in the men's 200m Freestyle managed only 10th and 13th spots respectively after setting times of 1:51.49s and 1:51.99s.
Wee Sheng, despite overcoming his personal best, was disappointed for not making the cut for the final.
"My performance today was better than yesterday but was still not enough for a place in the final. I will have to work harder in other events," he told Bernama today.
Tomorrow, action continues in the pool with Yap Siew Hui competing in the women's 50m Butterfly and Lim Ching Hwang down to compete in the men's 50m Freestyle.....
