15th ASEAN University Games, Chiang Mai 2010 : Athletics Schedule - Most Favourable

>> December 04, 2010

Ten days from now on the Asean University Games will opens its fifteenth edition in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This is a bi-annual event where the last edition was held in Kuala Lumpur.

In Kuala Lumpur, athletics events took place in four days, enough for 11 participant countries (2-3 countries with a full participant) with the schedule arrangement was not bad, but the Chiang Mai's schedule is more favourable.

In this edition athletics competition will take place over five days from 18 - 22 December including one day off day. I surprised the off day is on the second day, which is the rest day (strictly not for baton practice!) for sprinters after the 100 metres dash on the first day. Because the 200 meters will be on the third day.

The relays 4x100 meters and 4x400 meters are scheduled on the fourth and fifth days respectively. It will be a straight final for the 4x400 metres but there is the heats for the 4x100 metres. But i don't think so, because in the history of AUG nor SEA Games, normally only 3-6 countries sent their 4x100 metres teams.  So, the 4x100 meters also a straight final.

Since I am a sprint athlete, it is a tendency of judging only the schedule of sprint events, it is why i admit that this will be one of the most favourable schedules in the competition that i participate.

However, i found that the long distance events especially the women's 10,000 metres should be rearranged as they will hold it at 10.45am. Any long distance events should be held during the least hot in a day so the athletes could perform better and also to avoid any kind of heat illnesses.
