National Schools' swimming champion En Qi warms up for SEA Games
En Qi makes her mark at national schools' championship as the SEA Games looms
She clocked 26.05sec to win the B Division girls' 50m freestyle final at the National Schools Swimming Championships yesterday, beating the meet record of 26.29 she had set earlier in the heats.
But the Singapore Sports School's Hoong En Qi was not satisfied.
Speaking to The New Paper after the event at the Sports School, she said: “It's great because I managed to hit a time close to my personal best (26.01).
"But I was hoping for a 25.90, so I'm a bit disappointed."
The 16-year-old will be using the “disappointment” to motivate herself even more, as she prepares for what she hopes is a debut at the South-east Asia (SEA) Games, which will be held here in June.
