Jad Adrian wins 100m race in MASUM

>> February 27, 2010

The country's fastest men were the main highlights of the first day of this year's national university meet (MASUM) at Serdang, yesterday (26th February).

Malaysian Games champion Zabidi Ghazali (UM) whose personal best in the 100m is 10.57, and UPM's Latif Nyat (PB 10.45), the 2006 SUKMA champion and 2009 SEA Games representative were in actions.

In a close race however, it was UPM's Jad Adrian who emerged as the winner ahead of the duo national sprinters to defend his gold medal from the last edition.

In a cold final late-night race, he stopped the clock at 10.94  into a slight breeze (-0.5), right ahead of Zabidi and Latif Nyat. Both were clocked at 10.96 and 10.99 for silver and bronze, respectively.

"I only back into training about two months ago after a suffering hamstring injury, this is a good start for me."

"The race was very late (11pm) and the condition was a bit cold, but after all, I did not even taper for this", Jad said.

During the final race, Latif, the known fast starter came out off the block, exploding like a bullet to have a near two-meter gap straightaway. He led for 70 meters until the 24-year-old Jad Adrian shifted his faster gear and closed the gaps.

Jad, who had a smooth clearance and acceleration was left behind from the beginning as a result of the poor reaction, but his powerful swings kept him not far away from Latif.

He trailed Latif for an entire three-quarter of the race and only seen in front in the last 15-m.

Zabidi came "very late" but managed to catch Latif at the end.

Earlier, Jad Adrian clocked 10.89 to win a heat race against Zabidi who led him for 70m. Latif won another heat in 10.92.

UPSI’s top sprinter Izuddin Yahya was 4th in the finals with a time of 11.08s.

UIAM's Norhafiz was 5th in 11.28 while UiTM's M.Saufee placed 6th in 11.38.

A former national sprinter, Syarafie Sauli of UPSI injured and went to seventh in 11.41s while UNIMAP's Mohd. Isa clocked 11.46s for the eighth position.
