WATER POLO By Leroy Yap

9th Asian Swimming Championships

The water-polo games of the 9th Asian Swimming Championship was held between 19 to 25 November. Club

player Lim Yaoxiang captained the national team to reach the last eight as runners-up in Group A, after wins

over Sri Lanka (24-4) and Uzbekistan (8-7), an 8-8 draw with Saudi Arabia and a 23-2 loss to the world’s Number

6, China. Though the team lost 18-5 to Japan during the bronze medal play-off, the result topped Singapore’s best

for major international meets since the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul.
