UPM’s Karthik Jayamaran was in a great form heading the Malaysia Games (SUKMA) as he surpassed the ASEAN University Record (AUG) of  35:28.67s in the 10,000m with a time of 34:15.10s.

Karthik returned to track for the 5000m and clocked a meet record in 15:45.84s, which was only 14s away from the AUG record. He was then selected as the best male athlete of the championship.

Zaiful Zainal Abidin of UPM, the national 400m record holder displayed dominance and winning the event at 49.48s. He added another gold in the relays 4x400m. He also secured silver in the 200m, clocking 22.64s. UPSI’s Izuddin Yahaya won it at the end in 22.48.

One of the best days of the championship performances was from UPM’s Adi Alifuddin. Freshly from Tehran's Asian Athletics Championship in Teheran, he threw 16.20m in the shot put to eclipse the ASEAN university record which has stood at 16.03m.

Firdaus leaped 6.80m in the Long Jump, 4cm further than his fellow Alzanizam (6.76m) but won comfortably in the triple jump, leaping a distance of 14.70m. The winning distance was nearly a metre from the silver medal winner.

Another record-breaking in jumps was in the men’s high jump. UPM’s Najwan Aqra bettered the old height of 1.95m with a 2.02m. However, he attempted to rewrite the AUG record of 2.10m but not successful.
