B Div Swimming: Quah Zheng Wen of ACS (Independent) continues record breaking ways


Singapore Sports School, Tuesday, April 24, 2012 — Anglo-Chinese School (Independent)’s Quah Zheng Wen continued his record-breaking ways with a sub-2 min timing for his B Division Boys 200m Butterfly final win.

In a race that was more against the clock than his opponents, he managed a near-personal best time of 1:59.08, smashing his own inter-school meet record of 2:05.44 from the previous year. Yet, his time was still some way off Joseph Schooling’s national record of 1:56.67 achieved at the 2011 South East Asia Games. Zheng Wen’s personal best is 1:59.01.

Nevertheless, he continued his winning ways in the B Division Boys 100m backstroke event with a record time of 56.63 seconds. To put his swim in perspective, the 16 year-old’s splendid timing in this event broke the national record of 56.73 seconds set by Rainer Ng at the 2009 SEA Games.

Zheng Wen also returned to the pool for his fourth final race when he started off the backstroke leg for his school in the B division 4x50m medley relay final. Anglo Chinese School (Independent)’s quartet of Zheng Wen, Merrick Tan, Jerryl Yong and Wang Yi won that race in 1:47.71 to cap off a fine competition run for the school. It retained the B division boys title with 188 points. Singapore Sports School came in second with 170 points and Raffles Institution came in third with 50 points.

ACS (Independent)’s Wong Fu Kang had earlier set a new record in the C division 200m Individual Medley final with a time 2:15.80 to lead his school to the overall C boys title. He was also part of the school’s 4x50m freestyle relay team together with Darrian Chee, Dylan Koo and Kevin Ong that set a new record with a 1:42.04 win.
