Respective national record holder in the women 100 metres hurdles and men long jump, Dipna Lim-Prasad and Goh Yujie Matthew aside from picking up medals at SAA just concluded National Championships, they were both awarded Best Performance Award.

For the female category, 21-year-old Dipna achieved 927 points via her women 200 metres event. Her winning time of 25.63 seconds (0.2m/s) was good enough to clinch the individual award.

Although she scored higher in the 100 metres hurdles women event, some 937 points, it wasn’t counted as the race was a specially held time-trial to help her qualify for the upcoming ASEAN University Games.

As for the male category, 21-year-old Matthew jumped 6.88 metres (-0.5m/s) from day one of competition in the men long jump, garnering 892 points. He was duly awarded the award.

Only Under-23 years events are accepted and the points are tabulated using 2011 IAAF outdoor scoring table. Each of them will be awarded $500 prize money.

The 29-year-old was in Cape Town South Africa for the Race Walking Championships . Edmund crossed the finishing line in a time of 5 hours and 18 minutes, his final position four out of a total eleven competitors.

Good job Edmund.
