Khairul Hafiz Clocks 20.90s at 200m to Break Malaysian Oldest Record

>> July 19, 2017

Khairul Hafiz Jantan clocked 20.90s (0.0) to obliterate M.Jegathesan's 200m national record of 20.92s which has stood for 49 years since the 1968 Olympic Games.

The defending Asian junior champion has won the Malaysia open race ahead of teammates Jonathan Nyepa and Aravinn Thevarr Gunasegaran who clocked 21.29s and 21.31s, respectively.

Hafiz took the glory with a new championship record, erasing the 20.94s mark of Japan's Kento Terada that was set during the 2013 championships.

It also came after a controversial false start at the recently concluded Asian championships which saw the 19-year-old become the victim of poor judgment that results in his disqualification from the 100m finals after running the fastest times in heats (10.28s) and semifinals (10.24s).

This achievement has left Australia's Peter Norman (20.06s) as the only athlete to have his 200m national record, which was established from the 1968 Olympics at Mexico City to remain until today.

He is now a clear favorite to win both 100m and 200m at the 2017 Southeast Asian games next month.
