Chow’s race. He finished in 4:02.47 in 9/17 position

Singapore distance running most promising talent, Lui, Yuan Chow does it again. He consecutively broke another distance record back to back, the 3000 metres youth/U17 boys record achieved last month and the 1500 metres youth/U17 boys record during the weekend.

The 16-years-old Chow, rewrote Serjit Singh’s 46-year-old long standing 1500 metres boys records. He improved upon the timing by a nose, Chow’s 4:02.47 minutes effort was 0.03 seconds faster than Sergit’s hand-time result of 4:02.5 minutes.

The young prospect was in-fact not at his best, running the race while just recovered from a flu at the 2015 Australian All-Schools Championships, equivalent to our very own National Schools locally.
