Alkhaldi sets two PH records in SEAG swimming

CAPAS, TARLAC — Chloe Isleta and the Philippine women’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay squad added two more silvers to the country’s collection in the 30th Southeast Asian Games swimming competitions at the New Clark City Aquatics Center on Saturday. 

Isleta clocked one minute and 03.85 seconds behind Vietnamese swimming queen Nguyen Thi Anh Vien, who retained her crown with a time of 1:02.97. On the other hand, compatriot Jasmine Alkhaldi placed third and added to her growing bronze collection in 1:03.85.

Isleta’s time sank the nine-year-old PH mark of 1:03.69 of Dorothy Hong in the 2011 Indonesia SEA Games, held in the South Sumatran provincial capital of Palembang.

The quartet of Remedy Rule, Nicole Oliva, Xiandi Chua, and Alkhaldi capped the night after clinching the silver (3:47.05) behind the powerhouse Singaporean squad (3:40.97). Thailand copped the bronze (3:48.30).

The Pinay swimmers’ time was nearly six minutes faster than the previous national mark of 3:53.57 set by the team of Hannah Dato, Roxanne Yu, Elizabeth Ann Jordana and Alkhaldi in the 2015 Singapore SEA Games.

Alkhaldi added to her bulging trove of bronze medals in placing third in the women’s 50-meter butterfly (27:09) behind Singaporean winner Quah Ting Wen (26.50). Thailand’s Jenjira Srisa-ard settled for bronze (26.64).
