Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh shows class in Japan meet
MANILA, Philippines — Micaela Jasmine Mojdeh pulled off another sterling performance in her budding career, winning six gold medals in another record-breaking campaign in the recently concluded 2019 Age-Group Champs Swim Meet in Tokyo, Japan.
Mojdeh, the country’s newest swimming sensation and top aqua lass of the Philippine Swimming League (PSL) in the girls 11-12 division, ruled the 100-meter breaststroke (1:18.34), 100m butterfly (1:04.72), 200m individual medley (2:30.77), 100m IM (1:10.19), 50m butterfly (39.70) and 200m freestyle (2:13.01), all area records.
But her performance in the 200m freestyle is the most underrated considering that the event is the least on her favourites.
“Medyo mataas pa nga po ang mga time niya dahil siguro po pagod na dahil panglimang tournament na po niya ito this year. Pero talagang marami siyang ginulat sa 200m freestyle, ” said Mojdeh’s mother Joan, who served as team manager of the PSL team sent here through the initiative of PSL president Susan Papa with the help of Filipino-Japanese community in Tokyo.
