>> November 12, 2011

Two Indonesian men Sprinters won their respective semifinals races easily and set themselves the favorites for Gold-Silver in the blue ribbon final this evening.

Mohamed Fadlin had no problem to advance, clocking 10.69s in the semifinal 1, beaten Malaysian Ambrose Jilom in the second place (10.78). Surprisingly Thais Wachara Sondee was just able to place third in a time of 10.85 in the "slow-pace" race. Despite of clocking a poor time 11.09, Cambodian Pin Wanheip created a history for his country as he was confirmed for a final spot. He beats Singaporean Mohd Elfi Mustapha (11.22) who injured and denied his chance to hunt medal.

Franklin Ramses Burumi who ran a doubtful-timed 10.32 in Surabaya in March won the semifinal 2 in a time of 10.54, close to his real personal best 10.50. Singaporean Gary Yeo Foo Ee also proceed easily after clocking 10.64. The favorite Mohd Noor Imran Hadi of Malaysia who ran 10.40 this year seems to have problem and finished in third position (10.73), just ahead of Suphachai Chimdee (10.75) the 200m specialist with PB 20.68.

The fastest man and woman of the 26th SEA Games will be known this evening when the finalists are scheduled to compete in the finals at 6.30pm (Palembang time).
