Be in the Present, Enjoy and Focus : Inspirational Story as a Parent


Last weekend Tariq was in National Aquatic Center, Bukit Jalil participating in ASUM/MILO Junior Splash Swimming Competition

And for the first time, he clocked his new personal best under 1 minute for 50m Freestyle, alhamdulillah!!🤩🤩🥰🥰

To be exact, Tariq swam 54.69 seconds for a 50m Freestyle!!


And what was amazing about his 50m Freestyle that day was his sprinting.

Tariq was pacing the first half of the pool but as he gets closer to the finishing line, Tariq swam faster and faster, MashaAllah!

And overtook other swimmers who were ahead of him before that.

Well done my junior swimmer!!

Mama taught you not to worry of the result and to be in the your present moment, enjoying your swim and focusing on your swim..

And that’s exactly what you did!! Alhamdulillah!!🥰

Mama Baba and everyone in your team are so so proud of you, alhamdulillah!!🥰🥰💕💕🌟🌟👏🏻👏🏻

p/s: Tariq’s timing also improves in other events like 50m Butterfly, 50m Backstroke and 100m Freestyle

Swim baby swim!! Love your sprinting the last 25m!!
