Early last year, 11 days shy
of his 19th birthday, Welson
Sim made a significant
achievement in the world of
Malaysian swimming.

Welson Sim had the honour of
       becoming the first Malaysian male
swimmer to qualify for the Olympic

Games in the men’s 13 and over 400m

freestyle, with an impressive “A” cut. A

time of 3:50.33 allowed him to go under

the FINA automatic-qualifying time;

and he made

an impressive                    Interview with Welson Sim,

repeat with
another “A” cut

in the 200m                      Malaysian National Swimmer
freestyle as well.

Competing                        Welson talks to DSA about the world of
in his first
                                 Competitive Swimming
Olympics at Rio,

the jovial, take-

it-easy smiling

youngster soaked in the experience

and according to him, had so much fun

that he wants to be there at the 2020

Olympics in Tokyo. Achieving many

‘personal bests’ at the Games, Sim came

home proud of himself and having given

his best.

Welson was at the DSA Kg Pool to talk
to us about the world of competitive
swimming and what it takes to get an
edge over the best. Interviewing Sim was
DSA’s own Marellyn Liew, an ex- National
swimmer and butterfly specialist who
had narrowly missed qualifying for the
Olympics in 2008. Marellyn can see
parallels with Sim as they were both
around the same age at their qualifying
