A profile on Lee Hup Wei, Malaysian High Jumper
  • June 24th, 2008

Lee Hup Wei came down to Singapore last year for 1st All Comers 2007 (2nd, 2.10m)

The Selangor born lad, Lee Hup Wei is currently the front runner for the next SEA Games gold medal in the men’s high jump with his good showing of recent competitions.

Lee Hup Wei bagged gold last year at the Asian Track and Field (ATF) Championships in Jordan in July with a jump of 2.24m, then after that grabbing gold in December for the SEA Games 2007 in Korat, Thailand

Recently he smashed the 13 year old men’s high jump mark of 2.24m by Loo Kum Zee with a 2.27 meters effort at Good Luck Beijing 2008 China Athletics Open and in the process makes the Olympic Beijing qualifying mark

Lee Hup Wei failed attempt at High Jump

He attributed in his remarkable improvement to his Cuban coach Antonio Yznaga Ibar, whom currently is back in his home country due to health reason. In his absence Lee Hup Wei can only managed to clear 2.05m at the recent Thailand Open

It looks like Lee Hup Wei will be without his coach running up to the Olympics and will instead be under the guidance of former Sea Games gold medallist Lau Cwee Peng. He will also skip the three-leg Asian Grand Prix series
