Braeburn’s Nawab Rhea tops as Billing sisters renew rivalry

14 year-old Nawab Rhea emerged as the best individual overall girls winners after day two of the swimming event  during the finals of the Kenya Secondary sports Association term one games which came to an end at the Mangu High school on Saturday 20th April.

The Braeburn schools student excelled  in her 200m Individual Medley(IM) in a faster time of 3:02.23 7  leaving second placed Tracy Josiah  from Lakeside in distant second  time of 3:32.406. Third position went to Alice Kuria  from nairobi.

Earlier on, Nawab who managed to top the girl performance list with a total of 21 points easily won the 100 SC Meter Freestyle. It took her 1:15.05 7 to win the race. She was followed by fellow Nairobi teammate Haria, Rashi in  a time of 1:20.85 6 with Bisonga Michelle finishing  in third in a time of  1:23.48 5.

In the  boys  200m  IM   Seif Abdalla  of Mombasa emerged  victorious in a time of 2:54.49 7. Kim Hehsong of Nairobi was in second position in a time of 2:58.44 6. Korir Kevin from Abadare came in third  in a time of 3:05.81 5.

There was healthy sibling rivalry in the 100m freestyle and backstroke as Elder sister Simran Billing defeated Sister Anika Billing also form Braeburn School. Anika later came back in the Free event to defeat her elder sister, in the full watch of their Karuna Biling who must have been a proud mother.

“ It doesn’t bother who wins, I just  cheer them all equally sometimes encouraging the other to catch  up with the one in front or pushing  them both. I am spoilt for choice however as a mum. I  am happy for them both,” Said the Karuna.

Director of Swimming for Braeburn Schools Lindsay Takkunen was moved by team Nairobi ‘s performance and paid more emphasis to her students who swam exceptionally well in the two day gala.

“Compared to previous school editions I must admit there has been great improvement all round from my students. I am glad but the swimmers made the most of any conditions.” Takkunen said.
