Previous Edition: Our 2007 report

Day three of 54th Thailand Track and Field Championship and International meet yesterday (28th April 2008, Monday) at Thammasat University Stadium started early with a local victory in the 10km women walk at 6am. Royal Thai Air Force’s Thanaporn Piansakul emulated her last year winning performance again, but this time in a new record time of 54.57 minutes, smashed the two year old record which she held herself. Thai Kaewalee Promchatree came in second in a time of 57.10 minutes and another Royal Thai Air Force athlete, Vareerat Kete-teng, completed the podium finish with bronze, clocking 1:02.54

The morning continued with dominance of Thai soldiers in the men’s hammer throw. The top three finish was filled with local throwers. Royal Thai Army won it easy with a 52.17 meters throw. Vichitr Hontuanlom took second spot with 49.85 meters and Yongjaros Kanju third with a throw of 49.66 meters

The afternoon session started with men’s shotput. Overseas athlete performed well in this event as Uzbekistan’s Kumuly Grigory led the pack of competitors with loud shouts at each attempt. He grabbed gold with a throw of 18.28 metres, erasing the old seven years mark of 17.96 metres held by Thai’s Wansawang Sawasdi. Army’s Chatchawal Pol-yiam restored some local pride back into the event, as he finished second with his distance of 17.12 metres. Korea’s Nam-kyaw Oh completed the bronze with his throw of 16.45 metres

Polevault women saw local athlete Sunisa Kao-Eiad beating Taiwan’s Hsuen-Chin Hsu and Malaysia’s Noor Akmer Abdul Fatah for gold. Sunisa managed to clear 3.60 meters, while the Taiwanese Hsuen only managed 3.50 meters

The women’s javelin has a worthy field of throwers; among them was two Olympic qualifier, Thailand’s Buaban Phamang and Sri Lanka’s B.L.Nadeeka Lakmali. The duo pitted their best throws and it was the 26 years old Sri Lanka’s Nadeeka of Galle that got the better of Thai’s Buaban. Nadeeka managed to win gold with her throw of 54.11 metres while Buaban had to settle for silver with a distance of 53.26 metres. Buaban couldn’t emulate her personal best of 56.68 metres. Hyun-Ju Kim of Korea came third

The last event of day three was the exciting century race. The organisers saved the best for last. The women’s 100m race saw an excellent race for Thai’s current sprint queen Nongnuch from Royal Thai Air Force. She had an excellent race and never seemed trouble in her lane. She finished in 11.74 seconds. The main ‘battle’ was for silver and bronze. It was Korea’s Hyung-Mi who dipped more and won the second place in a time of 11.87 seconds while Thailand’s Sangwal Chaksunil had to settle for bronze. Her time was 11.88 seconds

The men’s 100m race saw a close race between Indonesia’s Suriya Agung Wibowo and Thailand’s Watchara Sorndee. Suriya who won the last edition of 100m SEA Games 2007 gold, pipped Watchara Sorndee of the ‘Do Win’ team by a close margin. Just 0.05s seperated the duo. Suriya finished in 10.44 seconds and Watchara 10.49 seconds. The consolation bronze goes to Hong Kong’s Chi Cho Tan, clocked at 10.68 seconds
