Our boys in Thailand have ran their final race for the Asian Grand Prix earlier, held in Chonburi, and below are their results:
In the men 4x100m final, the team from Singapore held their own as the event saw all the six teams produced a sub-40 seconds performance. Our team although finishing last, they ran a credible effort of 39.73 seconds. That timing alone is ranked #2 on the all-time list for the fastest time ran by a Singapore team in the relay event.
The race was won by the team from Taipei who clocked 39.23 seconds, while the Republic saw a different line-up from the team last week where they sprinted to a new national mark of 39.58 seconds. The relay coach Melvin Tan tinkered by replacing Gary Yeo who is nursing a hamstring strain with Md. Elfi Mustapa.
1. Taipei – 39.23s
2. Hong Kong – 39.27s
3. China – 39.31s
4. Korea – 39.34s
5. India – 39.56s
6. Singapore – 39.73s (Calvin Kang, Md. Elfi, Lee Cheng Wei, Md. Amirudin)
While in the individual events, Calvin Kang and Md. Amirudin Jamal ran the 100m final. Both athletes were slotted for the ‘B’ race, where they equally shared the same electronic timing in a heavily wind resisted race. The windspeed of -2.8m/s was recorded for this final alone, and the eventual winner was Al Sooli Abdullah from Oman finishing in 10.82 seconds.
