Commonwealth Game 2010 - Christina, Ian sparkle

Christina Loh (left) and Ian James Barr performed creditably despite not ending up on the podium.

CHRISTINA Loh set a national record in the 50m breaststroke while Ian James Barr made the semi-finals of the men's 50m backstroke as the rest of the Malaysian challenge sank at the Dr SPM Swimming Complex yesterday.
Christina, despite finishing sixth in her heats, clocked 33.39s to better her own national record by 0.03s.

Ian, swimming against quality opposition, did well to make the semi-finals which proved to be just too much for him later in the day but he did give the Malaysian camp something to smile about after Daniel Bego failed to impress in the 200m butterfly.
