Diary: Opening 2007

An online diary contribution by our Team Singapore athlete Shameer Ayub. His specialized events includes the 100m, 200m and the relays

Finally I kicked off the 2007 season @ the 1st AllComers meet with 60m & 80m. After failing to qualify for the Asian Games in Doha, my coach revamped the whole training program and system in Dec 06. Honestly, I have to give credit to him because i have ran the fastest ever time in my career. 6.82 (60m) & 8.65 (80m).

I am known for being a slow starter and ‘catching up in the later part of the races’. My best recorded 60m and 80m were 7.02 & 8.92. My coach refused to accept those facts and devised his own unique programs to help me with my first part of the race.

Shameer Profile

Coach: Mr Godfrey Alagappan

Occupation: National Serviceman

Personal Best: 100m (10.60) , 200m (21.50)


It was sheer hard work at first. I hated the pain i was feeling and i was also having doubts about the programs. (I have worked with some good coaches but none can make me run a good first part). Now, my doubts are cleared. I came in first together with Seng Song in the 60m race. Coming for my background, it is not easy to win a 60m race. I had expected friends like Izwan and Alfred to win me. (Alfred if u r reading this, Welcome Back Bro! I missed you last season man.)


Although i am happy with the results, my coach wasn’t clearly impressed. He said its a disappointing run because we had done better times in training and I didn’t execute the proper techniques we had worked on. Although i hate to agree, its true. Perhaps it is my first race. There is no excuse tho. I have to keep on working and see how it goes in my next race….
