Arvin misses final but gets personal best timing

SWIMMER Arvin Shaun Singh (pic) gave a creditable effort despite missing out on the top-eight final of the men’s 200m individual medley at Sandwell Aquatics Centre.

The 21-year-old clocked 2:05.65 to place 14th overall in the morning heats.

Arvin, who finished sixth in a tough Heat 4 won by Tokyo Olympic Games relay gold medallist swimmer Duncan Scott of Scotland (2:00.41), can take heart in posting a personal best time.

Arvin clocked 2:07.55 when he swam the same event at the Vietnam SEA Games in May.

Arvin earned his Commonwealth Games debut appearance after achieving three personal best marks in Hanoi and was also part of the 4x200m freestyle relay team who won the silver medal.

He was the last Malaysian swimmer in action on the final day of competition yesterday.
