Asean Para Games: Sarawakian swimmers set records en route to golds

KUALA LUMPUR: Sarawakians Anderson Jamba (pic) and Fraidden Dawan made big splashes for Malaysia on the final day of the Asean Para Games swimming competition.
Barely an hour after winning the men's 150m individual medley (S4) race and setting a new Games record, Anderson returned to the pool at the National Aquatic Centre in Bukit Jalil to claim his second gold for the day in the 50m butterfly race.
He clocked 52.06 to finish ahead of Thailand's K. Charkorn (55.90) and Vietnam's Ha Van Hiep (56.99).
Anderson clocked a new Games record of 3:22.21 in the 150m individual medley event earlier on Friday.
Fraidden won the men's 200m individual medley event (SM10) in 2:30.67 to break his own Games record of 2:32.46 set in 2011.
Myanmar's Aung Phone took silver in 2:40.41 while Yav Vannak of Cambodia got the bronze in 2:56.64.
It was the second gold for Fraidden who won the 400m freestyle race on Wednesday.
Malaysia ended the five-day swimming competition with nine gold medals to improve on their tally of seven won at the previous Games in Singapore two years ago.
