Lalu Zohri Wins 10.20 in Malaysia Open GP 2019

>> March 31, 2019

The first day (30 March) of the 2019 Malaysia Open Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur provided some exciting and top class performances.

But the performances at Bukit Jalil Stadium were dominated by Malaysian athletes who collected 5 gold medals (out of 13), 6 silver, and 6 bronze.

Nevertheless, the best performances of the day in "continental terms" came from several events including the men's 100m, 400m hurdles, shot put, and long jump.

As anticipated, Indonesia's Lalu Muhammad Zohri, the gold medalist of the 2018 World U20 championships took the victory in the century dash with a time of 10.20 (+0.1), a mere less than his personal best of 10.18, which was set during the gold medal-winning of the world juniors.

A 10.20 clocking also equaled his time during the last Asian Games in Jakarta where he finished in seventh place.

The 19-year-old did not get a good start but seen dominant enough at the second half of the century dash, much more like of Carl Lewis. He covered the distance in 45 steps.

Lalu Zohri was first known as he run 10.25 last year during the pre-Asian Games meeting in February last year at Jakarta.

He now has nine sub-10.30 performances (10.18 to 10.28) including two from the present international meeting.

Malaysia's Zulfiqar Ismail was distant away and crosses the line in second in 10.41, right ahead of Chinese Taipei's Wei-Hsu Wang (10.44) and Malaysia's Muhammad Haiqal Hanafi (10.46).

In the men's long jump, Asian games bronze medalist Sapwatturahman has registered 7.97m (+0.5) to win his pet event while Malaysian youngster Andre Anura had a new personal best of 7.72m (+0.8) in second.

Chinese Taipei's Chen Chieh took the victory in the men's 400m hurdles in a fast time of 49.77s. The Taiwanese has a personal best of 49.05. His teammate Ming-Yang Peng was trailing in second in 50.21.

Jordan's Musab Al-Momani who came with a lifetime best of 62.64m had no problem to win the men's discus throw in 56.16m.

Ivan Ivanov of Kazakhstan had the longest throw after registering 19.53m from his third attempt to win the men's shot put, beating South Korea's Jung Ilwoo in second place (19.08m). The 6-foot-8 Kazakhstani has a lifetime best of 20-m.

In the women's 100m, Kirghizistan's Anna Bulanova recorded a lifetime best of 11.75 (0.0) to win the women's 100m. Chinese Taipei's Chia Chen Hu was second in 11.89. Three Malaysians Siti Fatimah Mohamad (11.91), Komalam Shally Selveratnam (11.94), and Azreen Nabila Alias (12.04) were in 3rd to 5th places.

Russel Taib Renews Malaysian 200m Record in 20.77s

>> March 23, 2019

Australian based Malaysian sprinter Russel Taib has broken Khairul Hafiz's national record in the men's 200m with a time of 20.77s during the 2019 Queensland Track Classic at Brisbane, Australia today (23/3/2019).

Official results

He achieved the time with a wind reading of 2.0 m/s, just inside the allowed limit of +2.0m/s as set by the International Association of Athletics Federations.

Japan's Kei Takase won the B race right in front of Russel in 20.75s while South Korea's Lee Jae-Ha came third in 20.91s.

During the Malaysian Games in 2018, the Asian Youth bronze medalist came only third at 200m (21.30s), however, right on the same track earlier in January this year, the 21-year-old came very close to beating Khairul Hafiz's record during the Shield athletics meeting by recording 20.94s (+1.8).

For a record, Khairul Hafiz held Malaysian 200m record of 20.90s after breaking M.Jegathesan's national record of 20.92s which has stood for 49 years during the Malaysian national championships in 2017.

Meanwhile, Muhammad Hakimi Ismail cinched the gold medal in the men's triple jump with a wind-aided jump of 16.47m (+3.1), which he set during his last attempt.

He also recorded a seasonal best of 16.02m (+1.4 m/s) from the 2nd attempt.

The two-time SEA Games champion whose personal best is 16.77m (i.e. SEA Games record) is currently 2nd on the Southeast Asian ranking lists.

Mark Harry Diones of the Philippines, Hakimi's SEA Games main rival has registered 16.08s earlier this month during the Philippine national championships at Ilagan.

High Jumpers Lee Hup Wei and Nauraj Singh were the other two Malaysian in the meeting.

The experienced and SEA Games 1-2 favorites finished 3rd and 4th with 2.20m and 2.12m, respectively. New Zealand's Hamish Kerr came 1st in 2.24m.

The duo needs to clear 2.33m in order to compete in the IAAF World Championships at Doha in September.

Hup Wei was unable to clear 2.24m but making a 2.20m effort means equalling a season-best from the Ipoh all-comers in Malaysia last month.

Former Indonesian sprinter Yudi Purnomo dies at 58

>> February 16, 2019

Indonesia's former top sprinter Yudi Purnomo died on Friday (15 February 2019) after a 4-year battle with cancer (lymphoma).

Born in 1961, Purnomo competed in the 1984 Olympics and had won numerous medals in Asian-level competitions.

During the 1984 Olympics at Los Angeles, he advanced into the quarterfinals of the 100m after finishing in second during the second heat of round one in a time of 10.40s. In this race, he was behind the defending champion Allan Wells of Great Britain who recorded 10.32.

Later in the afternoon heat four of the quarterfinals, he finished in 3rd position behind Jamaica's Raymond Stewart (10.30) and Allan Wells (10.33) but was well ahead of Spain's Jose Javier Arques (10.52) to enter the semifinal round comfortably.

In semifinals, he clocked a time of 10.51s (+0.7) to finish in the eighth position of his first heat race and was eliminated; only top four of each semifinal heat would be qualified into the finals.

The race was won by Jamaica's Raymond Stewart (10.26). Ironically, heat 2 race was 'against headwinds' and apparently not quicker as the last qualifier Tony Sharpe of Canada at 4th place had a time of 10.52 (-1.5), which was one hundred of a second slower than Purnomo's. Carl Lewis won the heat 2 race in 10.14 who then took the victory in the finals in 9.99s.

During the 200m, he ended in 5th position during the quarterfinals in a new national record of 20.93s (-0.5) behind the likes of Carl Lewis (20.48), Stefano Tilli and Atlee Mahorn. He came third (21.01) earlier during the heat 9 of round one.

His first well-known international medals for Indonesia came from the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in 1983 at Singapore when he won 3 silver medals, the 100m (10.62) and 200m (21.82) individuals. He then teamed up in the 4x100m to take another silver medal (40.58).

Four months later, he clinched the ATF (Asian Track & Field)'s bronze medal in the 100m (10.60) and went on to win a silver medal in the 200m (21.64).

During the 1985 SEA Games at Bangkok, he clinched a gold medal in the 200m by clocking a time of 21.25s, and grabbed another medal as he finished in 3rd place in the blue ribbon event (10.62), behind teammate Christian Nenepath who edged Thailand's Sumet Promna following a neck-to-neck battle to the line for an identical time of 10.54s. After snatching the individual golds, they helped Indonesian quartet to secure another gold medal in the 4x100m.

Previously in the year when the ATF was held in his home ground Jakarta, he won two silver medals after finishing in second at 100m (10.33), behind China's Zheng Chen (10.28) and the 200m (21.19), behind South Korea's Chang Jae-Keun (20.57).

In the 1987 SEA Games in Jakarta, he clinched 2 silver medals from the 200m and 4x100m.

He retained his SEA Games silver medal at 200m in the 1989 edition in Kuala Lumpur after coming in second (21.32) behind teammate and the newly crowned 100m champion (10.40) Mardi Lestari who clocked 21-flat.

He has personal bests of 10.33s in the 100m that he set during the ATF in 1985 and 20.93s at 200m from the 1984 Olympics. His actual name is Purnomo bin Muhmmad Yudhi Wijaya.

Condolences to his family.
