As the whistle goes off, the boys are seeing diving into the pool and proceed to swim, however, Malume is seen doing an awkward belly-flop into the pool and swimming to the side of his lane instead of forward.
He eventually realises he is swimming in the wrong direction and splashes his way forward as he tries to finish the race. As awkward and hilarious as his attempt may have appeared, his relentless cheerleaders on the sidelines can be heard shouting his name and cheering him on with great enthusiasm – talk about true friends!
