kapas – marang international swimathon

Posted: Monday, April 16, 2007 in General

MARANG: One second. That was how close national swimmer Daniel Bego came to winning the Kapas-Marang International Swimathon title yesterday. The 18-year-old from Sarawak could have been the champion had he not blown his chances by swimming across a slightly longer route to the finish line at the Kelulut beach here.

He was pipped by Benjamin Sanson, 26, from France, who won the title with a time of 1:28:27 in the 6.5-kilometre race. Bego, who had just returned from the World Swimming Championship in Melbourne, Australia, was unlucky as he had picked himself up marginally slower in the shallows to race against the towering Frenchman for the home stretch.

“This year’s race was tougher as I had to swim against high waves and strong currents. I was also uncomfortable after being bitten by some sea bugs,” said Bego, who won the competition last year.

Sanson, meanwhile, said he was lucky to have won as Bego was a good swimmer. “I did not let him out of my sight. I am happy to have defeated him,” said Sanson who promised to return next year to defend his title.“I like the sea conditions,” he said, adding that he hoped to win two other events in Malaysia — one in Perak early next month and the other the Kenyir Triathlon Challenge at the end of next month.

Khoo Cai Lin, 18, retained her title in the Women’s Open Category and was also the overall winner in the women’s category.

A total of 168 swimmers took part in the annual event. The participants included those from Singapore, Iraq and France.
