Triyaningsih Won 10,000m - 3 Golds in Hands

>> November 12, 2011

In athletics event of the 26th SEA Games, who is going to win three gold medals? Triyaningsih of Indonesia !!

The first Gold medal already bagged home and it's from 10000m. En-route the race, realizing of the goal of 3 Golds, she did not even push herself to maximum, just puts some extra effort in some parts of distances to make sure the gold is her. In spite of that, she still had over one minutes margin between her time 34:52.74 and the silver medal winner Pham Thi Binh of Vietnam (36:04.83).  Another Vietnamese Pham Thi Hien closer to her teammate in bronze medal position in 36:16.84.

Tomorrow is the rest day for Triyaningsih. And will be back to track on the following day for 5000m, an event for which she holds the SEA Games and Southeast Asian records, 15:54.32 - surely another gold medal. The closest rival would be teammate Rini Budiarti who has run 16:08.00.

She will have another rest day before the Marathon on the last day. Kindly noted that she placed 4th in this event during Asian Games 2010. She also holds a personal best of 2:31:49, faster than some male runners in SEA Games- without doubt another gold.

Special thanks to the organizer for a wonderful schedule or timetable which created special for Triyaningsih to hunt 3 gold medals. But this is not strange, Michael Johnson had the pleasure from schedule adjustment in 1996 Olympics. Not only that, they did the same to Carl Lewis as well back in 1984 Olympics. And many others. But keep in mind that this approach is legal.
