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!
