Negri Sembilan Open 2009
  • April 26th, 2009

Due to political unrest in Bangkok, Team Singapore has opted to skip Thailand Open which is being held this weekend and instead compete at Negri Sembilan Open.

The competition in Paroi will feature Malaysian Amateur Athletic Union (MAAU) national athletes, local state athletes and Singapore will be the only foreign contingent.

Paroi Stadium saw one new national record, four gold, three silver and four bronzes performances from our Team Singapore athletes so far.

The women’s triple jump event saw Mariam Shazana Jalalludin breaking her old mark of 11.66m to established a new distance of 11.70m. Even with the new record, she was still way behind the eventual winner, Norina Damneon who jumped 11.94m, a Malaysian national back-up athlete.

The blue ribbon 100m men’s event saw U.K. Shyam taking the bronze in a time of 10.94 seconds. It was a photo-finish for second and third place as Mohd Idris of Malaysia was ahead of him just slightly. The winner was the promising young Malaysian junior Mohd Zabidi Ghazali, whose winning time was 10.73 seconds.

Rachael Wang was consistent with her pole vault effort and that earned her a bronze in Paroi. She cleared 3.75m, the same height as Vietnam’s Tran Tri Lan but the Vietnamese girl won the silver due to countback. The event was won by Asian Track and Field gold medallist Roslinda Samsu who established a new meet record of 4.25m.

In the women’s high jump, Michelle Sng comeback campaign in on course after her 1.70m effort which won the gold. The SMU undergrad is still way off her 1.80m national mark and 1.84m SEA Games qualification mark.

The men’s javelin event saw our local top athletes battling it out for gold and silver. They were a class of their own as Akid Chong and Koh Thong En won gold and silver respectively. Akid a Sports and Wellness Management undergraduate had a 55.91m effort while Koh, former ‘A’ Division Boys champion from VJC was second with 52.38m effort.

Men’s long jump saw Kenneth Wang winning the gold with a 7.21m effort while our current men’s record holder, Calvin Cheng could only settle for the bronze. He jumped 7.12m.

Women sprinter Balpreet Kaur Purba was third in women’s 100m event. She finished the race in a time of 12.89 seconds.

Women’s 400m hurdles saw the recent ‘A’ division national school champion winning the race with a time of 64.45 seconds. Close on her heels was Dipna Lim Prasad, a Singapore Sports School alumni who was second in a time of 65.36 seconds.
