Two local SAA affiliated teams, National University of Singapore and Wings Athletic Club travelled up to Ipoh last week to compete at the 2012 Perak All-Comers .

The team from NUS comprising of 11 athletes managed to snag a tidy haul of 9 medals, while 2 athletes from Wings added another 2 medals to the tally.

In the century sprint event, Md. Elfi Mustapa managed a season-best of 10.50 seconds, not only grabbing gold but also equaling the meet record timing. He is now ranked number one male runner in Singapore currently in the 100 meters event, behind joint ranked duo of Gary Yeo and Calvin Kang who are tied at 10.57 seconds.

The competition also saw personal best from NUS Goh Eng Wei in the 400 meters men event, clocking 49.83 seconds during his heat, and Wings Lim Yao Peng improved on his PB too with a 10.86 seconds effort in the 100 meters men event.

From ocasia.org:

The first Asian Youth Games were held in Singapore in 2009, helping the hosts prepare to stage the first Youth Olympic Games run by the International Olympic Committee the following year.

The second edition of the Asian Youth Games, in Nanjing, China, in 2013, will serve a similar purpose ahead of the IOC’s second Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014. Officially, there will be a total of 123 events in 15 sports, 6 more than that of the previous edition held at Singapore

One of the most popular aspects of the first Asian Youth Games was the Culture and Education Programme in which young athletes could learn all about the other countries and regions thanks to exhibitions, games and performances.
