Monash swimmers shone in MAPCU swimming tournament (Shu-Fenn's news)
19 April 2005

Monash swimmer Cheng Shu-Fenn shone at the recent swimming tournament organised by the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (MAPCU), with a medal haul of one gold, five silver and a bronze.

Cheng, a first year engineering student, took home the gold in the 50m freestyle while the rest of her medal haul came from the breaststroke and backstroke events.
A triumphant Cheng said she was surprised to have outperformed her stronger opponents despite the lack of practice. "I did not really practice for the tournament except while coaching the Selangor state synchronized swimming team."

Cheng has been swimming competitively for almost a decade and her last outing was in last year's SUKMA Games, a national sporting event which involved participants from all over Malaysia, Brunei and the Northern Territory of Australia.

She emerged champion in the eight-member synchronized swimming event and has since been elected to coach the Selangor state synchronized swimming team.

Cheng said she plans to retire from representing the State in competitive swimming but would continue to represent the university in swimming meets.

Her team mate Alvin Ng, also a first-year engineering student at Monash University Malaysia, said he would continue representing the university in swimming competitions if they did not clash with his study schedule.

Ng won the gold in the 50m breast stroke as well as a silver and a bronze in the 100m and 200m breaststroke events at the MAPCU meet.

Monash University Malaysia's Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Merilyn Liddell said it is important for students to strike a balance between the rigour of university study and co-curricular activities as these help in building wholesome personalities.
"We want our students to excel not only in their studies but in whatever sporting or community engagements they choose to be involved in.

"The university is fully supportive of our students to take part in activities that bring positive benefits to themselves, the campus, community and nation," she added.
