Buddika Kulatilaka of the British High Commission (BHC) put up an impressive performance at the recently concluded SSC Inter-club Masters Swimming Championship held in September at the Singhalese Sports Club.

Entered for the maximum of five events, he was placed in all, as follows:

1st place – 100m Individual Medley 35-39 (Men open)

1st place – 50m Breaststroke 35-39 (Men open)

2nd Place – 50m Butterfly 35-39 (Men open)

Adding to his excellent performance, what was even more remarkable was that Buddika took the initiative to enter the swimming meet and represent the BHC. Buddika’s achievements were recognised by the BHC and he was presented with a framed certificate of appreciation by the British High Commissioner, Dr. Peter Hayes, at a gathering of all BHC staff.
