The Commonwealth Games is not short of drama, as the teams which were disqualified yesterday in the Round 1 of the 4x100m men’s event appealed, and was successful.

They overturned the ruling of exchanging of baton outside the take-over zone. Bahama and Australia will now take place of Singapore and Nieu respectively in the finals, to be held later in around 3 hours time.

A damper of a news to our team indeed, but they have achieved their targets of a fine 100m individual performances, and a season-best in the 4x100m.

If based on the results of Round 1, Team Singapore is ranked tenth fastest out of the 19 Commonwealth teams in the Heats. We’re proud of you guys!

Original Post


From the left, Gary, Elfi, Calvin and Amir. File in photo taken recently at the Singapore Open.

Looks like lady luck is smiling for our men’s relay team as they progressed to the finals, at the expense of the Bahamian, and Australian teams.

They qualified as the automatic top two qualifiers with Niue; yes it’s a country, an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean; after the Bahama and Australian relay teams were disqualified for passing out of the zone.

For their Round 1 race yesterday, our boys in the relay order of Gary Yeo, Md. Elfi Mustapa, Md. Amirudin Jamal, and Calvin Kang finished in a time of 40.14 seconds, while Niue ended their race in 44.85 seconds.

The 40.12 second achieved was the boys season-best timing behind their Hong Kong’s race back in July, where they were clocked at 40.42 seconds.

For the race itself, Gary Yeo had a blinding start. Via lane 5, he was the first to react from the starting blocks, even surprising the Aussies on the outer lane.

The passing of baton transition was smooth overall, but still Team Singapore needs more pace.

If there’s one thing you can’t hurry, is getting your speed back after an injury, and two of our boys are recovering from such.

Well this is a great opportunity for our boys to suit-up again later today in the finals, and try one more time to go under the 40-seconds barrier that has been elusive to them all-year long.

You’ve already made us proud by qualifying for the finals, and hitting a season-best timing. Now have a crack at the national record yar! You can do it.

Good luck guys! Once again let’s oh-yeah oh-yeah oh-yeah cheer our boys. Send your well-wishes to Gary Yeo, Elfi Mustapa, Amirudin Jamal, Calvin Kang and Lee Cheng Wei.

The hopes of the whole nation rest on the shoulders of these four boys, from the left, Md. Amirudin Jamal (3rd Leg), Calvin Kang (4th Leg), Gary Yeo (1st Leg) and Md. Elfi Mustapa (2nd Leg). Not in the photo, is sprinter Lee Change Wei, and their coach Melvin Tan who is in India supervising his charges.

Alright, the official start-list is out, and Team Singapore has been slotted into Heat 2 of the qualifying rounds for the men’s 4x100m men.

There’s three heats altogether, and our boys was given an excellent lane allotment, which is Lane 5, but to advance to Round 2, they face stiff competition however.

In their heats, there’s the teams from Bahamas and Australia, who on paper are a class above any other teams, but on a given day, it’s your form that counts.

With our boys spirits at an all-time high after an excellent individual performances at the last week 100m qualifications, we stand a good chance of qualifying! Still if it isn’t to be, then a season best is all we hoped for. Just give all your best guys.

Only the first 2 in each heat and 2 best performers advance to the Final.

Go Team Singapore. Keep supporting our guys!

Send your well-wishes to Gary Yeo, Elfi Mustapa, Amirudin Jamal, Calvin Kang and Lee Cheng Wei.

Well looks like across the board, the three boys are of equal standard. Two of our boys made it to Round 2 of the Games yesterday, and that’s encouraging sign.

Gary Yeo finally dip below his personal best of 10.67 seconds, running 10.66 seconds in Round 1, and 10.75 seconds in Round 2.

While Amirudin Jamal was consistent in both his races of Round 1 and 2. He was clocked 10.63 and 10.64 seconds respectively.

Md. Elfi was pitted in a tough Round 1 heat, and he finished in a time of 10.73 seconds, a far-cry from his season best of 10.56 seconds, but I believe more is to come from this fella.

Now the boys will focus on their next race, the 4x100m relays. They’ve still five days until race-day, which is on the 11th October, Monday.

They’re in fine form now, and I’ll boldly predict and wouldn’t be surprise if they run a sub-40 seconds.

So let’s give them all the support, and encouragement.

Send your well-wishes to Gary Yeo, Elfi Mustapa, Amirudin Jamal, Calvin Kang and Lee Cheng Wei.


Md. Amirudin Jamal

Round 1, Heat 1 – 10.63s, finished 5th (Wind: +0.6m/s) ADVANCES TO ROUND 2
Round 2, Heat 1 – 10.64s, finished 8th (Wind: ?) DIDN’T QUALIFY SEMIS


Md. Elfi Mustapa
