Mojdeh sinira ang record ni schooling; PSL Tankers kumuha ng 21 gold sa day one

Nagpasiklab si PSL tanker Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh sa 50m breaststroke event ng SICC Invitationals.

SINGAPORE -- Pinangunahan ni record-breaker Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh ang paghakot ng Philippine Swimming League (PSL) ng 21 ginto, 24 pilak at 20 tansong medalya sa unang araw ng 2017 SICC Invitational Swimming Championship na ginaganap sa Singapore Island Country Club dito.

Nagpasiklab ang Immaculate Heart of Mary College-Parañaque standout na si Mojdeh nang basagin ang re­kord sa girls' 10-11 50m breaststroke sa pagtatarak ng 38.65 segundo - mas mabilis sa lumang marka na 39.12 na naitala ni Elizabeth Lee ng Singapore noong 2011.

Muling umarangkada si Mojdeh sa 100m butterfly kung saan nagsumite siya ng 1:10.49 para lampasan ang 1:11.89 ni 2016 Rio Olympics gold medalist Joseph Schooling sa age-group noong 2006.

“She's really impressive - an Olympian in the making. We're so proud of her. She broke the record of Schooling established in 2006 - the very same year Jasmine was born. The future of Philippine swimming is bright. We just have to guide them towards that ultimate goal of making it to the Olympics and hopefully end the country's medal drought in swimming. It's been like decades since the Philippines won a medal in swimming,” pahayag ni PSL President Susan Papa kay Mojdeh.

Kumana rin ng tig-dalawang ginto sina Kristin Ivy Aus­tria (girls' 16-17), Richelle Anne Callera (girls' 7-under) at Martina Estrella (girls' 8-9) sa kani-kanilang kategor­ya, habang nagsumite ng bagong marka si two-time Pa­larong Pambansa Most Bemedalled Swimmer Kyla Soguilon sa girls' 12-13 class.

Nagreyna si Austria sa 50m breaststroke (38.68) at 200m freestyle (2:35.45) gayundin si Callera na na­mayagpag sa 50m backstroke (45.91) at 100m butterfly (1:43.51) at Estrella na nanguna sa 100m butterfly (1:31.40) at 50m backstroke (40.98).
