On Sunday 29 November, 12 students from the Junior School represented AISM at the annual Biathlon held at Gardens International School. The event comprised of teams of 4 with the school entering one team in the Under 9 category and two teams in the Under 11 category.
The Under 9 team of Eliza Tan, Shin Yi Pan, Rafael Drummond-Costa and Jin Ho Ju performed amazingly well in both the pool and on the track eventually winning Gold for their combined times. It was a fantastic effort against multiple teams from other International Schools across KL.
Both Under 11 teams also performed very well, with the team comprising Yin Jenn Goh, Anna Huggel, Brayden Gorbach and Euan Kniesz coming in a very respectable 7th place. Unfortunately the time obtained by the other Under 11 team of Manami Kuno, Darcy Stevens, Flynn McCarthy Wallace and Tane Dolan wasn't counted due to the structure of the team. They however performed exceptionally well and had an excellent experience.
Congratulations to all the individual competitors and the the teams, especially the Under 9s on their fantastic achievement.
Adam Gets Back to Back Podium After Taking Pole
Newly turned 17-year old Adam Khalid, has recently just claimed his maiden Pole position ahead of Australian Jordan Love and Japanese Yuma Shoji in the recent AsiaCup Series event. This event is the Asia's most successful junior driver development program with contestants from all around the world and cars powered by a full carbon FB02 Mygale chassis with 140 bhp BMW engine.
After struggling to find pace in the first event held in August, Adam has bounced back with a strong Pole position in qualifying followed by scoring big points for Race 1 & 2 finishing in 2nd place for both races.
We wish Adam all the very best in the final race of the year.
