          Swimming is a healthy activity. It works practically for all of the muscles in the body (if you do a variety of strokes). Swimming can develop a swimmer's general strength, cardiovascular fitness and endurance.

I started swimming when I was in my form 6. I did it because I wanted to improve my balance ability due to over-trained of badminton. I did a lot of hard-works in this. After 8 months, I get my first license in swimming. I get ILS licence together with bronze license.

Additional Health Benefits of Swimming
  • Whole body conditioning: Swimming tones your upper and lower body because you’re using almost all of your major muscle groups. The best strokes for all-over body toning are the freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke.

  • Low risk of injury: There is a low risk for swimming injuries because there’s no stress on your bones, joints or connective tissues due to buoyancy and the fact that you weigh 1/10th less in water. 

My first coach is Khoo Soo Aun, he just passed away 6 months ago. He was a very professional swimming coach. 
I get my ILS licence at Bukit Mertajam Country Club (BMCC) in the year of 2008.
I assisted Mr. Wong (+60124843803) in coaching for swimming for three months, and became half year of part-time life guard at BMCC, I rescued people. :)
The famous swimming venues in Penang are BMCC, Seberang Jaya Swimming Pool, PISA Stadium, and Taman Teratai Swimming Pool.

The recent water sport activity I joined and awarded silver medal, at Penang.
