Our boys in Thailand have ran their final race for the Asian Grand Prix earlier, held in Chonburi, and below are their results:

In the men 4x100m final, the team from Singapore held their own as the event saw all the six teams produced a sub-40 seconds performance. Our team although finishing last, they ran a credible effort of 39.73 seconds. That timing alone is ranked #2 on the all-time list for the fastest time ran by a Singapore team in the relay event.

The race was won by the team from Taipei who clocked 39.23 seconds, while the Republic saw a different line-up from the team last week where they sprinted to a new national mark of 39.58 seconds. The relay coach Melvin Tan tinkered by replacing Gary Yeo who is nursing a hamstring strain with Md. Elfi Mustapa.

    4x100M RESULT
    1. Taipei – 39.23s
    2. Hong Kong – 39.27s
    3. China – 39.31s
    4. Korea – 39.34s
    5. India – 39.56s
    6. Singapore – 39.73s (Calvin Kang, Md. Elfi, Lee Cheng Wei, Md. Amirudin)

While in the individual events, Calvin Kang and Md. Amirudin Jamal ran the 100m final. Both athletes were slotted for the ‘B’ race, where they equally shared the same electronic timing in a heavily wind resisted race. The windspeed of -2.8m/s was recorded for this final alone, and the eventual winner was Al Sooli Abdullah from Oman finishing in 10.82 seconds.

    1 Zheng Pei Meng CHN 10.41 -3.1
    2 Ghasemi Reza IRI 10.56 -3.1
    3 Zheng Dongsheng CHN 10.65 -3.1
    4 Abepitiyage Shehan Sadaruwan SRI 10.67 -3.1
    5 Al Sooli Abdullah OMA 10.82 -2.8
    6 Ali Liaqat PAK 10.82 -3.1
    7 Farrel Octaviandi INA 10.88 -3.1
    8 Kang Li Loon Calvin SIN 10.98 -2.8
    9 Mohammad Amirudin Bin Jamal SIN 10.98 -2.8
    10 Liang Tse Ching TPE 10.98 -2.8
    11 Iswandi INA 10.98 -2.8
    12 Sathoengram Jaran THA 11.00 -2.8

At the second leg of the Asian Grand Prix, held earlier in the day at Kanchanaburi, Thailand, our national 4x100m relay quartet of Calvin Kang, Gary Yeo, Lee Cheng Wei and Md. Amirudin (in that order) powered away to 39.58 seconds to break the old mark of 39.82 seconds set in the 2009 SEA Games.

It was the same line-up that took a crack at the record two days ago, but they fell short by one-hundredth of a second to equal the record, clocking 39.83 seconds in the first leg of the Asian GP, which was previously held in Bangkok.

The team cites that their baton passing could be better, and lo and behold, under the watchful eyes of national relay coach Melvin Tan, the record finally tumbled.

Record is pending ratification by SAA.

Well done guys!

    1. China 38.65s (NR)
    2. Hong Kong 38.71s (NR)
    3. Taipei 39.19s
    4. South Korea 39.50s
    5. Singapore 39.58s (NR)
    6. Indonesia 40.23s
    7. Thailand 40.25s
    DQ India

Other individual Team Singapore results from the Asian Grand Prix are as below:

    100m – Gary Yeo, 10.74s
    100m – Md. Elfi 10.86s

The competition now moves to the third and final leg, Chonburi on 14th May.

SAA Training and Selection committee would like to publish the below 2012 Asian Junior Athletics Championship qualifiers for Singapore:

Team Relays

3 relay teams that have qualified for the Asian Jrs and selection for the final 6 runners for these 3 teams are as follows.

  • 4x100m Men: As Donovan Chan & Tan Zong Yang have qualified for the 100m race, they do not need to compete at the SAA Series 4. They are part of the final 6 runners. Md Naqib Asmin with his 10.97s at SEA Youth is also part of the final 6. But if at the Series 4 competition (under legal wind condition), anyone who runs faster than Donovan’s, Zong Yang’s and Naqib’s current timings of 10.7, 10.92 and 10.97, then ALL will be ranked again to select the top 6 to form the relay team. (To replace the previously mentioned athletes in the individual 100m, the times in the 100m race at Series 4 must be in legal wind condition.)
  • 4x400m Men: Since Ng Chin Hui has already qualified for the 400m race he does not need to compete at the Series 4. He is part of the final 6 runners. But if at the Series 4 competition anyone runs faster than their current ranked timing, they will be ranked as well and if they fall within the top 6, then they will form the relay team.
  • 4x400m Women: We do not have anyone who has qualified for the 400m race. Anyone who is keen to be selected will need to compete at the SAA Series 4, when the final 6 runners will be selected. Those runners who ran the 400m race at the recent SEA Youth Championship do not need to compete, but if anyone surpasses their timings, they will be cross ranked to select the final top 6 runners.
  • A relay Team coordinator will be appointed to take care of the individual relay teams and the team training will be stipulated by the relay coordinator starting from May 21 till Asian Jr to prepare for the championship.
  • All top 2 runners from 100m men and 400m men & women will be automatically fielded for the individual 100m and 400m.
    For all other events: Athletes who have qualified and want to be part of the Asian Junior Championships Team, must get their coaches to confirm their participation. If we do not hear from Coach or Athlete by Monday 21st May, we shall take it that you are not available for the Asian Junior Championships.
  • All selection will be confirmed after SAA Series 4.
