Pin Wanheab Breaks Six National Records

>> July 03, 2012

Sprinter PIN WANHEAB eclipsed the 38-year-old Cambodian National 200m record  after registering 21.85s during Nottwil Swiss Meeting at Nottwil Switzerland a few days ago (30 June). The previous record was held by Samphon Mao set at 1700m altitude in Tehran in 1974. He placed 4th in his final A race that won by World class sprinter Marlon Devonish of Great Britain in 20.64s. This made a total of SIX National records in his hands after 100m, 300m, and indoors 50m, 60m and 200m, all set in 2011-2012.

Two weeks ago (17 June) the 27-year-old Swiss born who appeared in the 100m final of 2011 SEA Games has done the same. In a regional athletics championships at Bulle (SUI), he broke the National 100m record 10.82A which was also held by Samphon Mao from the same meet in Tehran in 1974. Samphon Mao hand-timed mark 10.4h established in 1968 at Phnom Penh however remains the Cambodian record for hand timing, but it's now looks to be nearly at an end.

Although he was born, then living, schooling, enjoy the life in Switzerland, and holds Swiss and Cambodian citizenships, he has never opted to compete for Switzerland. His parents want him to contribute and start with Cambodian athletics. In 1976, it was a bloody civil war in Cambodia, and that caused his parents made a decision to migrate to find a safe and peaceful place in Switzerland.

Olympic Games
Although achieving great results as a Cambodian, Wanheab's dream to compete at the Olympics unfortunately would not be realized as the Cambodian authority has already selected their representatives for the Olympics, and that's not even Hem Bunting.

National Record
As of 1st of July 2012, he holds six national records in sprint events, three from outdoors 100m, 200m and 300m, and three others from indoors 50m, 60m and 200m. He also has a 400m best of 50s flat set less than a month ago at Bern (SUI). Below is a list of national records held by Pin Wanheab.
