SEA Games: Katrina Ann wary of Singapore threat

National synchronized swimmer Katrina Ann Abdul Hadi fears that Malaysia’s chances of doing well in the SEA Games could be compromised by their lack of experience.

Almost 90% of the team will consist of new athletes that only came into the scene last year, and considering that Singapore’s squad is far more experienced in international competitions, Katrina claims that it would be hard for Malaysia to replicate their achievements at the 2011 SEA Games in Indonesia.

“After the SEA Games in Palembang, Singapore maintained their athletes and kept grooming them. Whereas from our squad, only three athletes from the team that swooped gold medals in 2011, remain within the ranks,” she told Harian Metro.

“After the SEA Games in Palembang, Singapore have maintained all their athletes.”

Katrina went on to say that the Malaysian team is determined to at least claim one gold medal this time around. To prepare for the SEA Games, the national synchronized swimming team will be in action at the 2015 Japan Open.
