Going for Gold
@ the Badminton Finals
Flying the Ichthus ﬂag high, petite little Merlyn, brought home the Gold medal at the recent Jakarta Inter-school Badminton championships.
It was not all fun but grit, hard work and hours and hours of practice. Following her progress from heats to semi ﬁnals and to the ﬁnals, to ﬁnally heave out a roar of “Gold to Merlyn!”, it was nerve wrecking for us just to follow her journey. For little Merlyn, she does her best one game at a time.
We are so proud of you Merlyn.
