Two years ago on this day, on the 17th December, the men 4x100m relay quartet of Yeo Foo Ee Gary, Muhammad Elfi Mustapa, Lee Cheng Wei, and Muhammad Amirudin Jamal set a new national mark with a sublime time of 39.82 seconds at the 2009 SEA Games, Laos.

Going into the competition the unfancied Singapore team nearly stunned the favorite Thailand as they put up a strong fight right from the start till the finish.

The Thai however having an overall better ground speed, pipped our boys for the gold medal by 48 hundredth of a second. The winning time was 39.34 seconds to the Thais, while second place Singapore team was clocked at 39.82 seconds in the finals.

The relay boys successfully emulated the 2003 relay team performance in Vietnam which last won the 4x100m silver medal. That team comprised of Lin Jingze, UK Shyam, Hamkah Afik and Poh Seng Song.

Despite settling for silver our boys had another reason to rejoice as they’re the first Singapore squad to go below the 40 seconds barrier for the 4x100m relay event.

Their 39.82 seconds timing in Vientiane, Laos improved and erased the old record of 40.10 set in 2007 at Korat, Thailand (Yeo Foo Ee Gary, Mohd Shameer Ayub, Kang Li Loong Calvin, & Poh Seng Song).

The mark still stands today.

Two-years ago today on this date, long jumper Matthew Goh leapt into history as he erased the national record when he cleared 7.62 meters at the 2009 SEA Games.

He was leading the competition with his first jump attempt of 7.62 meters but the other long jumpers wasn’t about to settle for second-best.

Joebert Delicano of the Philippines, the eventual silver medalist took the lead from Matthew as he soared with 7.74 meters in the next jump.

Suparana Sukhasvasti Na Ayudhaya then stunned the field with a final jump attempt that earned him the gold medal with an effort of 7.83 meters.

The 25th edition of the SEA Games held in Vientiane, Laos finally saw the then 18-year-old finishing sixth in a tough men final in recent memory.

Matthew was just 11 centimeters short from grabbing a podium finish. The fourth and sixth spot was closely separated by 3 centimeters.

The Singapore Sports School alumni in total had three successful attempts, while fouling his other three.

Matthew is still around in the scene and is currently leading the 2010-2011 rankings in the men long jump event with 7.14 meters (-1.4m/s). Although still active, he’s taking a break from serious training and is contemplating his future as he embarks to further his studies at SMU.

He is also the record holder in the long jump for Under-23 (7.62m), Junior (7.62m), Youth (7.02m) and Under-17 (7.02m).
