Firdaus Mazalan Bettered National Junior Record at 400m Hurdles Twice in a Week

>> May 13, 2012

One of the best results achieved at Kedah Open at Alor Star which ended yesterday was in the men's 400m hurdles. Promising hurdler Mohd Firdaus Mazalan shines in front of the home crowd to blaze to victory in 52.50s, a new National Junior Record, again, after lowering the previous mark 52.57s that shared by Azlan Samsuddin and Muhamad Firdaus Mazalan (b. 1992) to 52.56s in last week's Negeri Sembilan open.

Interestingly, his time is comfortably within the standard of World Junior Championships (53.34s) that is staged at Barcelona on July 10-15, 2012. But the 19-year-old who based in Kuala Lumpur (National Training Track) is also gunning for the gold medal at Malaysian Games (SUKMA) which will be held in July at Kuantan.

Meanwhile, in sprints, Mohd Zabidi Ghazali continues to win the men's 100m. He produced a respectable time of 10.58s, only one hundredths of a second late to his lifetime best 10.57s. For a record, he set 10.42s during the Malaysian Athletics Federation (MAF) Grand Prix last week but the time was discounted after the timing system was believed to be "malfunction".

On the field, the best result came from women's triple jump. Noor Amira Mohf Nafiah, who probably don't have other colour of medals apart from the "gold" from any competition among the locals, now reinforced the dominant after sailing to a 13.57m distance which improved her previous best by 20cm as she won the event easily, as usual.

Last Friday in the MAF Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur she leaped 13.37m and then equalled the distance at the following day at Seremban.

Results to follow ... stay tune.
