Sea Games: Sacrifice pays off for swimmer Cai Lin


A DECISION to hold off further studies paid off for swimmer Khoo Cai Lin, who pulled off another surprise for Malaysia by capturing the 400m freestyle gold medal in a Games record time at the Aquatics Centre of the Korat Sports Centre last night. 

The Selangor-born Cai Lin, who delayed going back to college in a bid to realise a dream to qualify for the Beijing Olympics, finally made it in style. Her winning time of 4:18.20 was inside the B qualifying mark of 4:20.05.
