Her place in national sporting history was sealed when she won the 400m freestyle at the National Aquatic Centre in Bukit Jalil recently in Asean University Games. Khoo won gold in the 100m 200m, 400m, 800m freestyle and other several events. In total, she broke six meet records and three national records.
National swimmer Khoo Cai Lin could not have asked for a better gift for her 20th birthday. With great ease and elegance, the young athlete swam her way to three gold medals at the 14th Asean University Games (AUG). But, more significantly, she smashed the 400m freestyle national record held by Nurul Huda Abdullah for 20 years. She could not have asked for more for her birthday. How many young people get to experience this? She is going to celebrate her birthday on Christmas Day.
