Weisenheimer Academy’s Marc Bryan Dula had an outstanding performance in the the 2016 Tokyo Winter Swimming Championship held at the St. Mary’s International School swimming pool in Tokyo, Japan.
But he’s not stopping there.
The nine-year-old tanker vowed to strive harder to continue delivering medals in the next international tournaments that he’ll be joining.
“It’s a good feeling that you are giving honors for your school, your parents your coaches especially for our country,” said the Grade 4 student Dula.
“That moment when you are beating tall and strong foreign rivals, it’s such an honor and I’m happy that I’m one of the lucky swimmers who’s given a chance to represent our country in international level,” he added.
Dula bagged a total of four golds in the Tokyo meet highlighted by his record-breaking feats in boys’ 50m butterfly (38.08) and 50m backstroke (39.45).
He also topped the 25m butterfly (17.83) and 25m backstroke (19.41) events.
Dula went on to win the Most Outstanding Swimmer (MOS) award in his age-group after collecting a total of 36 points.
In 2015, Dula also claimed the MOS trophy in the Singapore Invitational Swimming Championships.
In March, Dula will be representing the Philippines anew in the 2016 Indian Ocean All-Star Challenge to be held in Perth, Australia.
