About only two days after that (23rd May) he renewed the mark in a throwing meeting at Turnov, Czech Republic with a distance of 61.56m.

On the 25th of May, the two-time SEA Games champion eclipsed his record again with a throw of 62.55m during the Union Leichtathletic Gala at Linz, Austria.

Rayzam Shah has posted two sub 13.90 in Germany

Meanwhile on the same day (25th), Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian has done two sub 13.90s at 110m hurdles in a track meeting at Zeulenroda, Germany.

He clocked a time of 13.89 (0.3) in heats and then 13.85 (0.0) in the finals.

Rayzam returned to Liepzig on the 9th of May to train under his German coach Jan Erasmus May - three weeks after the South African training camp where he ran two sub 14.00s (13.93 each) from two separate competitions.

The race was won by German Eric Balnuwet in 13.63 (heats 13.57), Rayzam in second while Julian Marquet third in 13.93.

Rayzam' chance to win SEA Games
The chance to bag gold medal is very high - Thai Jamras Rittidet the defending champion is retired. The closest is a hurdler from Laos who has a lifetime best of 14.00s.
