Calvin Kang will be representing Singapore in the Men 100 Meter Dash Open at the 76th Singapore Open Track & Field Championships 2014. Here’s is his profile awareness of our selected National Athletes for the competition.

    Age: 23 years old

    Weight: 67kg

    Height: 175cm

    Coach: Melvin Tan

    PB:
    100m – 10.52s -0.4m/s (2013 IAAF World C’ships)
    200m – 21.68s 1.0m/s (2010 Asian Games)
    400m – 49.94s (2013 Series 3)

How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?

Preparation for Singapore Open is a bit short as I just came back from the Commonwealth Games! However, it will be a good prep towards the Asian Games next month!

What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?

Expectation will be to run close to a PB in the 100m, if God willing to break 10.52s! For the relay, we plan to run a SB, below 39.9s!

Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?

I look up to Mr C Kunalan- he ran a superb 10.38s 40 over years ago, the support then was minimal but what was driving him was his talent, his passion and his focus to break the national record! I hope to emulate him!

How did you get started in athletics?

Elias Park Primary’s PE teacher spotted me with fast legs! There are 2 areas that make a sprinter fast! Quick legs + big stride! I had a very fast frequency at that tender age and it was a natural progression to try out sprints! I began to love it since.
