Moh Heng Feng Shaun of Dunman High School was in excellent form in the A-Boys long jump event earlier. The 17-year-old added 31 centimetres to his personal best as he leapt ahead of the field to win gold with a distance of 6.84 metres. At last year’s Nationals, Shaun finished second (B-Boys, 6.41 metres).
Shohib B Abdul Wahab Marican (16:57.60) from Raffles Institution completed his distance double this season with a win at the recent A-Div 55th National Schools Cross Country Championships, and today earlier a 5000m school boy title. The 18-year-old was a double silver medallist from last year edition of National Schools and this time round he clinched the title with a convincing burst of pace on the second last lap to break away from ACJC’s Leroi Lee Rong Zu, who ran out of gas and finished third.
It was a good day for the Raffles Institution boys distance running team. After Shohib B Abdul Wahab Marican wins gold in his A-Boys 5000m event, Tan Chong Qi (Bib #303) who was running the B-Boys 3000m event, followed suit in Shohib’s winning ways. The young Chong Qi improved upon his position and timing, as the last edition he was placed sixth in 10:00.81 , to this year’s 9:34.84.
