The fine show in the state meet, four bright talents from the SDAT-Dolphin swimming academy made a big impression in the sub-junior national aquatic championship held recently in Bangalore. The pick among the four was P.M. Abishiktha, who won gold medals in the 50 and 100 m free style events as also in the 200 IM. Besides she won the silver in the 50 m backstroke and bronzes in the 4 x 50 m medley and freestyle relays. All in all with the ‘best swimmer' in the Group IV section for girls, Abishiktha carved a name for herself in the Bangalore meet. V.S. Gokulnath (silver in 50 m freestyle and 50 m backstroke) in Group IV and Sumer Malhotra (silver in 50 m medley and free style relays) in Group III completed the happy tidings for the Academy.

The proud swimmers along with Chief Coach K.T. Muraleedharan met the SDAT Member Secretary, Satyabrata Sahoo, who felicitated the young talents.
