The below are the top 3 ranked male and female athletes that SAA will be looking at to nominate for the 2012 IAAF World Indoor Championships (9-11 March).
Stefan Tseng – Triple jump 15.72 1017 points Sea Games
Gary Yeo – 100m 10.64 996 points Sea Games
Lee Cheng Wei – 200m 21.60 981 points Sea Games
Dipna Lim-Prasad – 100m/h 14.44 979 points Sea Games
Shanti Veronic Pereira – 100m 12.37 948 points Series 1
Eugenia Tan – 100m 12.56 916 points Series 1
The athletes above are nominated based on their best recent performance (from Sea Games 2011, SAA Track & Field 6th Series 2011 to SAA Track & Field 1st Series 2012) using IAAF Scoring Tables of Athletics 2012.
SAA will only nominate the best 1 Male and 1 Female and the 2nd and 3rd place will stand by as reserve. For Field event entry, we can submit but it’s still up to the IAAF Technical Committee to confirm with us upon submission if the best athlete is from field event will be accepted.
There’s still another competition, SAA Track & Field 2nd Series 2012 for which athletes can still qualify if they outscored the current nominees.
