Day 1 of 24th SEA Games 2007
  • December 7th, 2007

Dec 7th, Friday

It was a brilliant opening ceremony yesterday at Nakron Rachassima, amidst the fireworks and colorful pageantry outfits by the performances. Yesterday showcase was a display of Thailand’s vibrant culture fit for a King, and the well orchestrated opening signifies a festive mood is in the air

But the participating SEA Games athletes knows and has to put that joyous mood on-hold as crunch-time is finally here. They’ve waited and trained for this very moment for so long. It’s time to get serious for all the competing athletes, as today marks the first day of athletics action. Five of our national athletes are competing, and we hope they’ll do the nation proud

Nine medals are at stake where events such as Triple Jump and Shotput finals is scheduled to be held later. Good luck to all the athletes, we at Singapore Athletics and fans wish our national athletes the best in their events

Women’s 100m Semifinals – We have our two top ladies national 100m sprinter in the qualifying rounds, hoping to reach the final eight. Amanda is seeded in a tough Heat 1, with SEA Games defending 100m women champion Vietnam’s Thi Huong while Siao Mei is in Heat 2 occupying Lane 2. They both have an arduous task of qualifying

Men’s 100m Semifinals – At last check our top male sprinter Shammer Ayub was not on the start list, only Poh Seng Song was. We’re unsure if he’s injured or a reserve runner will replace him should be, if he’s indeed injured. Seng Song who is in Heat 1, is assigned to Lane 6, next to one of SEA Games 100m favourite Thai’s Suwannarangsri Sompote, having a season’s best of 10.33s compared to Seng Song’s 10.69s. On paper, Sompote is sure qualifier but I believe, Seng Song can match on par with Sompote as both sprinters have fast explosive starts and we hoping he can trail Sompote to qualify for the finals

Men’s Shotput Dong Enxin name is not on the Men’s shotput start list, and we’re hoping this is not the case as he’s a medal potential. Local shotputter Chia Chang Yi is the other national athlete who is in the shotput event. Chia Chang Yi is a familiar face in the local throwing scene and he’s hoping for success at the Games. Out of the six on the start list, he’s ranked fifth based on his season best. He just need to out-perform the other two throwers to get on the medal podium. You just never know, such Games sometimes bring the best out of our athletes

Men’s Triple Jump Stefan Tseng who is a success story for the Singapore Sports School development, is a revelation of sorts. Records after records smashed locally and world top ranked junior in his age group in the Triple Jump, Stefan now has to compete with the region’s best. Although he’s the youngest among the Triple Jump participants, his season best is up there with the rest of the senior Triple Jumpers

Team Singapore update as of 6.51pm

Amanda Choo and Poh Seng Song both qualified for the 100m finals of their respective events, the duo clocked personal best and I believe Amanda got a crack at a new national women 100m record, lowering it to 12.12s in the heats. The finals, both of them ran a credible ran

Ann Siao Mei in the other women 100m semis, didn’t qualify when she finished with a time of 12.46s, short of the mark and the young Stefan Tseng achieved a respectable 7th placing out of 9th with a 15.34m effort in the Men’s Triple Jump. Men shotput Chia Chang Yi finished sixth with a throw of 13.34m
