When this reporter arrived at Bukit Gombak today, I was greeted by the subdued atmosphere. I was surprised that such a regional event, THE 2nd South East Asia Junior Championship has such low record attendance. The sparse crowd was mainly made up of the athletes themselves in bulk. Some parents was there, but overall I’ve seen better crowds at a Primary School meet. The association could at least get the word out to schools for some support at least.

Though the attendance in tow was in low number, it doesn’t diminish the excellent performances by our upcoming juniors. We saw a sublime sub 12 seconds run from Jiantara Seangdee winning the 100m ladies finals in a time of 11.83s. While the mens finals hurdles went to the ‘tape’ as Jamras Rittidet pipped Malaysia’s Rayzam Sha by 0.01 seconds with a time of 14.04s & 14.05s respectively.

Our local athlete did us proud too. Our ‘golden girl’ Wan Lay Chi, surpassed her expectation as she obliterate the field with a throw of 13.26m that won her the gold. Her closest rival was some 0.6 meters away. Our promising sprint junior, Balpreet Kaur archived a personal best and also recorded the fastest 100m timing for a Singaporean in the 100m ladies category this year when she clocked 12.30s, earning her the deserved bronze. She was head to head with the eventual winner from half-mark but the Thai girl showed her class as she pulled away in the last 20 meter or so.

Congratulations to all athletes
