SINGAPORE–Jasmine Mikaela Mojdeh of Parañaque, Tarlac City’s Trizia Tabamo and UST chemical engineering student Jazmine Francheska Mirazol stood at the forefront of Philippine Swimming League’s five-peat in the recent Singapore Island Country Country Club Invitational Swimming Championship.

The 12-year old Mojdeh, a Grade 7 student at the Immaculate Heart of Mary College Parañaque, created huge waves as she broke the Philippine junior record in 100 butterfly with time of 1:05.10. Camille Buico owned the old national record of 1:05.20. She also rewrote the SICC record of 1:09.12 by Singaporean Vanessa Ong.


Mojdeh, who idolizes Swede Olympic heroine Sarah Sjostrom, also rewrote the SICC mark of Siew Hui Yap (30.94) in the 50 butterfly for 12-13 years old with a clocking of 29.62. She also bettered the SICC marks in the 100 breastroke of Ang Hui Shan Dayna ( 1:20.05) with a clocking of 1:19.02. Mojdeh also reset the 50 breastroke mark also of Ang Hui Shan Dayna (36.44) with a new time of 35.88.


Mojdeh grabbed a total of six gold medals, the same output she made in the elementary division of the 2018 Palarong Pambansa in Vigan.

“We are so proud of her,’’ said PSL president and Asian Gamer Susan Papa, who thanked PSL chair and former Senator Nikki Coseteng and MX3 for supporting the team.

The PSL started its title romp in 2014.

A product of Caloocan City Science High School, Mirasol shone with six gold medals to gain Most Outstanding Swimmer award in the girls’ 18 and over.

Tabamo showed a bright future as she won seven gold medals.

Tabamo broke the SICC record of teammate Mojdeh in the 50 butterfly for 10-11 years old girls with 31.43 second. Mojdeh old mark was 31.55.


Modjeh also shattered Joseph Schooling’s age-group records in the 50 and 100 butterfly.  She also rewrote Schooling’s mark last year.

She sizzled in the first day of competitions with five golds in the girls’ 10-11 – 50m butterfly (31.43), 100m freestyle (1:06.69), 200m IM (2:48.11), 50m freestyle (30.13) and 200m freestyle (2:31.73).

Tagum City’s Rain Andre Tumulac (boys’ 10-11) and Greg Rolan Sumile (boys’ 18-over) also figured prominently as they emerged top swimmers in their age classes.

Aishel Cid Evangelista, Albert Sermonia, Trump Luisto, Master and Benedict Janda also excelled. The PSL, however, lost a gold mine when Marc Bryan Dula, hot favorite to win at least five gold medals in record-breaking fashion, failed to see action due to illness.

Other gold medalists were Heather White, Lhaarny Agnas, Albert Sermonia, Alura Javier, Ixdorre Cajucom, Joaquin Mirasol, Alexandra Bonite, Leano Vince Dalman, and Merrel James Neri.
