>> May 14, 2018

Jackie Wong Siew cheer has broken his own national record in the men's hammer throw after registering 66.01m during the last day of the 95th Malaysian open championships at Bukut Jalil (13 May).

The 2017 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games champion made an opening throw of 64.66m to beat his season best of 64.35m from the Commonwealth Games last month. He improved the mark with his 65.65m effort in the second throw, before hurling the iron ball to the new record distance.

Under the guidance of China's former Asian champion Gu Yuan, Jackie made a steady progress by improving his performance every year.

Jackie Wong has broken the national record 10 times from Sep 2013 to May 2018

Jackie Wong had been trying to break Wong Tee Kui's national record of 58.52m that was set in 1992 before he eventually did it during the Islamic Solidarity Games in September 2013 with a distance of 59.53m. In less than three months, he went on to break the record again with 59.75m throw to earn the bronze medal in the SEA Games at Nay Pyi Taw. He would then renew the record for at least 8 times during the period of 2014 to May 2018.
