Jamras Rittidet 13.83, Rayzam Shah 13.87 110MH Asian GP 2nd Leg, Kanchanaburi 2012

>> May 12, 2012

Fast times produced in the men's 110m hurdles at the 2nd leg of Asian Athletics Grand Prix 2012 at Kanchanaburi province yesterday (11 May 2012). Fan Jiang of China was at his best to beat Kuwait's Almandeel Abdul Aziz (winner of the 1st leg in Bangkok) with 13.54s and bagged the gold. Abdul Aziz who produced 13.58s in the first leg only manage to finish in 13.69s.

But the point of talking among SEA fans and athletes was the current fastest hurdlers in Southeast Asia, Jamras Rittidet and Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian. Rittidet, the reigning SEA Games champion held off the challenge of his Malaysian rival to steal the bronze in a season best time of 13.83s, with 13.87s for Rayzam. 

In the previous race (1st leg) Rittidet was ahead of Rayzam with nearly the same margin of time. But Rayzam had a season best (and PB) 13.81s clocked at Melbourne last month, which is better than Rittidet's performances here. Now there's the final leg scheduled on the 14th of May, which is going to be more exciting and faster times will be seen.

Meanwhile, Chinese athlete continue to dominate the sprint hurdles when Sun Yawei took the gold medal in the women's event in 13.22s. But the victory was not that easy as Indonesia's Dedeh Erawati was just two hundredths of a second trailing behind her (13.24s).
