Luqman Hakim Ramlan leaps to third Malaysian longest jump at 7.87m

>> December 22, 2019

Malaysia's Luqman Hakim Mohd Ramlan has registered 7.87m in the men's long jump today (22 December) during the MAKSAK athletics championships at Kuala Lumpur.

He renewed his season-best of 7.77m he set last month, and a personal best of 7.82m from the FTAA all-comers in March last year.

He moved to third on Malaysian all-time long jump list, behind Andre Anura (8.02m) and Josbert Tinus (7.87m).

He is not a new name in athletics, his highest participation in the long jump was in the 2018 Asian Games at Jakarta, and this year's World University Games in Italy.

He also competed in the 2017 SEA Games but injured earlier this year, which prevented him from making a cut for the recent edition.

He also holds the current national record for under 20 (junior) with a leap of 7.58m from 2014.

The 24-year-old is the training partner to Andre Anura who recently became the first Malaysian to surpass the 8-m mark in the long jump, under coach Firdaus Salim.

Luqman Hakim Ramlan soars to 3rd longest jump in Malaysia (7.87m)

>> December 12, 2019

The 2nd edition of Sukan Sarawak of SUKSAR (Sarawak State Games) in Miri (9-14 December 2019) has produced some attracted results in track and field events.

The main highlight was the record-breaking performance of five young local sprinters who have broken the games record of 11.11.

Fifteen-year-old Audray Macshaquille Hillary Jugah, born 16 January 2004, was reported to have clocked a time of 10.91 to win the century.

No wind-winding was available or reported.

Edward Adau Peritt whose PB is 10.93 grabbed the second spot from Dion Dexter Harden who ended in third. Both have clocked an identical time of 10.99.

Khairulnash Mohammad was slightly behind them in 11.00 to finish in the 4th ahead of Givyasclive Yamin in 5th (11.07).

This shows that Malaysia has got plenty of talent for sprint running.

In less than 4 weeks ago, a 15-year-old Malaysian sprinter, Azeem Fahmi has run the 100m in 10.57 to become one of the world's fastest sprinters for the age of under 16.

Previously, a 14-year-old sprinter, Jad Rizalman clocked 10.96 in the 100m dash.

Flash Performance ____ Malaysia's Muhammad Hakimi Ismail clinched his 3rd consecutive win of the men's triple jump during the last day (10 Dec) of athletics event at the SEA Games at New Clark City, the Philippines.

Bautista dethrones Rayzam Shah in men's 110m hurdles

>> December 09, 2019

Clinton Bautista of the Philippines broke the 30-year-old Malaysian-and-Thai dominations in the men's 110m hurdles as he dethroned a defending champion during the 30th edition of SEA Games at New Clark City, the Philippines (Dec 9).

The 27-year-old grabbed the gold medal from Malaysia's two-time SEA Games winner Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian with a new PB and his first sub-14.

Both were given the same timing of 13.97 (-0.2 m/s), but Bautista 'arrived' to the finish line first, very marginally ahead of his rival, and had to be decided by a careful photo-finish review.

His actual time was 13.962, while Rayzam at 13.962, a 0.005 difference!

Bautista has reacted very quickly to the gun and gained a great advantage of his seven-step approach to the first hurdle.

It gave him an early gap in the first clearance from the Malaysian two-time World championship representative, who used a more traditional eight-step approach.

He has improved his lifetime record from 14.13 he set during this year's Asian GP in China.

Laos' Andusone Xaysa secured the bronze in 13.99, also his first legal sub-14 and a new national record. He ran 13.96 in Thai open in 2017 but it was under a doubtful circumstance.

Rayzam whose PB is 13.67 from 2017 won the last edition in Kuala Lumpur, 10 years after his first victory in 2007.

Had he ran his season-best of 13.82, set in March, the gold medal would be in his possession. But he broke his arm during the April Malaysian open GP and had to perform intensive care and treatment.

Yap Sean Yee and Wanida Boonwan shared SEA Games Gold in high jump

Malaysia's Yap Sean Yee and Thailand's Wanida Boonwan shared the Gold medal in women's High Jump during the 30th SEA Games, at Clark, the Philippines.

Both were awarded the top spot as they cleared the same best height of 1.81m, and also all the previous heights during the same (i.e. first) attempts.

Interestingly, it was the same as in the last edition in Kuala Lumpur, with Vietnam's Duong Thi Viet Anh and Singapore's Michelle Sng shared gold medal in 1.83m.

During this edition, Yap Sean Yee also cleared the same height of 1.83m (her current PB), but ends up in 3rd placing after a countback.

Comparatively, Boonwan has won five medals in SEA Games including gold in 2015. She has a PB of 1.92m, and jumped consistently above 1.85m in the past.

Malaysia's last gold medal in women's high jump was 40 years ago through Gladys Chai who cleared a height of 1.68m. She also won the previous editions in 1973 and 1975.

Unlike in women, Malaysia has a long history of domination of men's high jump in the SEA Games, with Lee Hup Wei taking his fourth SEA Games gold yesterday.

Le Tu Chinh beats Knott to retain SEA Games Gold at 100m in 11.54

Flash Performance___The key to success in the 100m is efficiency - in the execution of racing strategy.

It was what Vietnam's defending champion Le Tu Chinh has done during the finals of women's 100m to clinch the gold medal in 11.54 (-0.5 m/s), whilst defended her title.

Kristina Knott of the Philippines, the winner of 200m yesterday, was trailing her from the start, ended slightly behind in 11.55.

In the 200m yesterday, Knott won in a new SEA Games record of 23.01 and leaving Chinh in a distant second (23.45).

Knott, who has a 100m best of 11.41 from last June, was a clear favorite as she became the fastest finalist in 11.45 clocking, with Chinh (PB 11.47) who as well the defending champion in 200m, was second in 11.61.

One would expect an easy win for Knott. But it did not happen, Chinh took the victory!

Chinh has executed her race very well from the start to finish. A simple review of a high-speed camera found a 0.02s gap by Chinh right at the start.

Singapore's Shanti Pereira retained her bronze medal in 11.68, as he did in the 200m.

Lee Hup Wei wins fourth high jump gold in SEA Games

>> December 08, 2019

Lee Hup Wei earned his fourth gold medal in the SEA games as he won the men's high jump during the 30th SEA Games edition in Clark, the Philippines.

The 32-year-old cleared 2.21m to win the gold medal from defending champion, Nauraj Singh who had to settle for the silver medal after a countback.

During the last edition in Kuala Lumpur, both have cleared 2.24m but Nauraj won on a countback as well.

Nauraj holds the current national record of 2.30m that qualifies him for the Rio Olympics in 2016, while Hup Wei's PB of 2.29m was achieved recently in Doha to become the first Malaysian to reach the finals of world championships.

Lee Hup Wei won his first SEA Games in 2007 (2.19m), and retained it in 2009 (2.18m) and 2011 (2.15m).

The SEA games title was then handed over to Nauraj in the next three editions in 2013 (2.17m), 2015 (2.13m), and 2017 (2.24m).

The SEA games record of 2.24m is being held by three Malaysian athletes, both Hup Wei and Nauraj from 2017, and Loo Kum Zee from 1995.



Malaysian domination in high jump

Malaysia has been dominating the men's high jump in SEA Games. This was started by Zainal Salleh in 1967 who won Malaysia's first high jump gold in a height of 1.91m.

But only ten years later in 1977, the gold medal returned to Malaysian possession when Baljit Singh won in 2.04m during which Malaysia became the host.

Malaysia then continues to win the gold medal in every SEA Games editions, except in 2005 when the gold medal went to Vietnam's Nguyen Duy Bang (2.14m).

Ho Yoon Wah won in 1979 (2.05m) and 1981 (2.10m), and this was continued by Ramjit Naurulal who bassed the gold in 1983 (2.13m) and 1985 (2.07m).

Loo Cwee Peng won three times in 1987 (2.10m), 1991 (2.17m), and in 1993 (2.21m), while the 1989 edition was grabbed by Kesavan Sibalan who achieved a height of 2.14m.

Loo Kum Zee continued this tradition with five consecutive wins in 1995 (2.24m - current SEA Games record) 1997 (2.10m), 1999 (2.21m), 2001 (2.18m), and 2003 (2.15m).

Haiqal Hanafi wins SEA Games 100m Gold in 10.35

Malaysia’s Muhammad Haiqal Hanafi is the king of sprint of the 30th SEA Games that was held in Clark, the Philippines.

He clocked a new personal best (PB) of 10.35 to win the century dash in an unexpectedly huge margin against a strong 100m field.

Thailand's fastest final qualifier Sowan Ruttanapon and Bandit Chuangchai were in second (10.49) and third (10.52) for silver and bronze, respectively.

Ironically, the 20-year-old was not listed as a representative for the 100m until the mid of November when the Malaysian Athletics Federation decided to have him as a replacement of an injured sprinter (Zulfiqar Ismail).

In fact, he was not the first choice for that as was the 4th fastest among the locals, behind Jonathan Nyepa (10.37), Zulfiqar Ismail (10.41), and Russel Taib (10.42), before the SEA Games.

However, he had a more compelling performance throughout the year than other Malaysian sprinters who seem unconvincingly prepared for the sprint century.

He won a double (100m and 200m) in the national championships in August and posted a 10.44 during a local meeting in November.

Haiqal who trains under Poad Kassim has triggered a sound signal for something to watch in the finals as he ran 10.39 in heats in the morning, a personal best.

"Thanks God, thanks to my coach, families, and those who have supported me, I executed my race plan very well," Haiqal said.

Meanwhile, Vietnam’s Le Tu Chinh retained her title in the women’s 100m in a time of 11.54, just ahead Kristina Knott of the Philippines who stopped the clock at 11.55.

Like Haiqal, she was unstoppable after taking a good lead from the start.

Singapore's Veronica Shanti Pereira retained her bronze medal from the last edition as she finished in third place in 11.66.

Malaysia's Zaidatul Husniah Zulkifli who bagged the silver medal in Kuala Lumpur, was in sixth in 11.84.

Flash Performance ___ Malaysian sprinter Haiqal Hanfi clocked a new personal best of 10.39 (-0.1 m/s) during his 100m heats, in the Day 3 morning session (8 December) of the 30th SEA Ganes at Clark.

He entered the final round as a second fastest qualifier behind Thailand's Ruttanapon Sowan who also ran a new personal best of 10.34.

The next fastest qualifiers were Thailand's Bandit Chuangchai (10.50), Anfernee Lopena of the Philippines (10.61), and Malaysia's Jonathan Nyepa (10.65).

Meanwhile, after winning the women's 200m yesterday, Kristina Knott of the Philippines returned to track and won her 100m heats. The US-based sprinter clocked a time of 11.45 (-0.1 m/s).

She has a lifetime best of 11.42 in the 100m this year.

Vietnam's defending champion Le Tu Chinh won the second heat in 11.61 (0.0 m/s).

Malaysia's Zaidatul Husniah Zulkifli ran 11.68 behind Knott in the first heats. She won silver medals at 100m and 200m behind Le Tu Chinh during the last SEA Games edition in Kuala Lumpur.

Full results of men's and women's 100m heats as follows (in order):

Kittipong Boonmawan 67.56m Hammer SEA Games record, Jackie Wong 63.83m for Silver

Flash Performance___On Saturday (7 December) the second day of athletics in the 30th Southeast Asian Games, Thailand's Kittipong Boonmawan has thrown the iron ball at a distance of 67.56m to take the gold medal in the men's hammer throw while erasing the games record of 65.90m.

Malaysia's defending champion Jackie Wong Siew Cheer seems unable to repeat what he had been doing during the previous months and years.

He settled for the silver medal in the best distance of 63.83m.

He also had fouled three times, which seemed to deny his chance of getting good marks.

He recorded a distance of 68.22m a few months ago, his 13th national record in his pet event.

Andre Anura became the first Malaysian to go over 8 metres in long jump

An 8-meter mark would have won the gold medal in all the SEA Games editions, but not during the most recent one at Clark, the Philippines.

Two legal marks of over 8 meters were set in a dramatic men's long jump finals on Saturday evening (7 December).

At first, Malaysian youngster Andre Anura @ Anuar who had jumped 7.90m last month had two massive foul jumps beyond 8 meters, during his first and second jumps.

However, it was Indonesia's Asian Games bronze medalist Sapwaturrahman who eventually claimed the gold medal.
Andre Anura leaped 8.02m in long jump

With a personal best of 8.09m, the 25-year-old former Indonesian sprinter has registered a distance of 8.03m (+0.5) during his fourth attempt, renewing the Games Record of 7.87m by Henry Dagmil of the Philippines since 2007.

The 20-year-old Andre responded that during his last attempt but merely shy from grabbing the top spot. He secured the silver medal.

He recorded a distance measuring 8.02m to become the first Malaysian to achieve an 8-meter mark in the long jump.

Thailand's former Asian decathlon champion Suttisak Singkhon who stands 6'3" and weighs 95kg, had a new PB of 7.89m, which would also renew the previous GR, but only enough for a bronze medal.

It was unfortunate for Andre that he had "deemed to be better" jumps which were fouled, while his best legal jump was against a slight breeze (-0.1).

Andre now owns the Malaysian national record by renewing the mark of 7.88m by Josbert Tinus since 2007.

Of note, Andre's 7.90m mark last month was not ratified by the national federation due to the absence of wind reading, and "technical constraints" (meeting not recognized).

Russel Taib runs 10.42 in 100m for new PB, and 21.05 in 200m

>> November 17, 2019

With only three weeks prior to SEA Games, Malaysian sprinter Russel Alexander Nasir Taib is on the right track to perform his best.

He just set a new personal best of 10.42 (+1.9) in the 100m at the Benita Willis Shield, a summer season track meeting in Brisbane, Australia yesterday (16 November).

The 21-year-old improved from 10.49 he set earlier in March.

He won his 100m race ahead of Hugh Donovan who recorded 10.62 in second, and Prosper Nwoko in third (10.68).

On the very same day in Kuala Lumpur, Haiqal Hanafi won the SSBJ open in a time of 10.44.

Watch: Russel Taib won 100m in 10.42


In this annual QA Shield Series, he also competed in his pet event, the 200m and stopped the clock at 21.05 (+1.7), his 3rd fastest time under a legal condition.

As in the 100m, he finished first ahead of Donovan (21.37), with Reece Holder was very close in third (21.38).

For a record, he broke Khairul Hafiz Jantan's Malaysia's 200m record of 20.90 with a time of 20.77 in March this year during the Queensland Track Classic at the same running track.

Watch: Russel Taib won 200m in 21.05


In SEA Games next month, Russel is scheduled to represent Malaysia at the 200m, with Thailand's Siripol Punpa could be his main rival.

Punpa leads the Southeast Asian rankings with 20.76, he set at an altitude in Erzurum, Turkey in July.

According to PASI (Indonesian Athletics Federation), Lalu Zohri the world junior champion will skip the games.

Despite setting 10.03 in 100m, and 20.81 in 200m, Lalu Zohri would be excluded from the SEA Games as the federation is not keen to send those who have excelled at an elite level (including Lalu Zohri) for the regional games.

Another rival for Russel would be his compatriot Jonathan Nyepa who set 20.92 in April at Georgia, USA.

The last gold medal won by a Malaysian in SEA Games was in 2003 by Nazmizan Muhammad.

Haiqal Hanafi runs 10.44 and Zaidatul Husniah 11.84 to win 100m finals of SSBJ Open 2019

>> November 16, 2019

The men's 100m race of the 3rd SSBJ Open Championships at the National Stadium (warm-up track) would have been one of the most intense "battlefield" among Malaysia's local sprinters.

The likes of Khairul Hafiz Jantan whose PB is 10.18, Jonathan Nyepa (PB 10.28), Aqil Yasmin (PB 10.39), Zulfiqar Ismail (PB 10.40), Nixson Kennedy (PB 10.43), and Haiqal Hanafi (PB 10.43) were listed in the "E Race" (last of 5 final races) of the men's 100m.

But Haiqal Hanafi emerged as the winner, confirming his "number 1" status among Malaysians, just like what he did during the national title in August.
Haiqal clocked 10.44 to win the senior 100m race
He crossed the line comfortably in 10.44, ahead of Aqil and Jonathan who were almost absolutely together on the line and had to be determined by a photo-finish.

Aqil was ahead of Jonathan by less than 10 milliseconds. The official times for both were captured as 10.63.

Khairul Hafiz Jantan, who had a series of injuries this year, was in the fifth position in 10.79.

Zulfiqar withdrew as he was not fully ready to compete after an injury.

In the youth category, Malaysian youngster Azeem Fahmi, 15, whose best times of 10.63 in 100m and 21.15 in 200m, which he set earlier this year to become one of the world's fastest sprinters for his age, had a splendid run and clocked 10.57, a new personal best to win the under-16 race. Read here for details.

In men's long jump, Luqman Hakim Ramlan had a good leap of 7.77m right after a one-hour "break" due to heavy rain.
Lokman Hakim registered a season-best of 7.77m in long jump

He had beaten SEA Games representative, Andre Anura who jumped 7.90m two weeks ago, by just one centimeter.

Meanwhile, in the women's 100m, Zaidatul Husniah regained a fine form as she clocked 11.84 (+0.4) to win her race ahead of training partner Azreen Nabila who set a season-best in 11.92.
Husniah won her 100m race in 11.84
Earlier in women's 1500m, SEA Games representative Savinder Kaur finished her race in 4:27.45, a good timing, which is the 3rd fastest time recorded by a Malaysian in more than 20 years.

She now on the 3rd of Malaysia's all-time best performance, getting close to P. Jayanthi's national record of 4:23.49 from 1993, and Yuan Yufang's 4:24.46 from the 1997 SEA Games.

Azeem Fahmi, 15, smashes 100m record in 10.57s

Malaysian teen sprint sensation Muhammad Azeem Fahmi has just recorded another personal best in the 100m.

He clocked 10.57 seconds (-0.1) to win the under-16 category of the 3rd Bukit Jalil Sports School's track and field meeting at Kuala Lumpur today (16 November 2019).

This incredible result came after a 45-min delay due to heavy rain.

He lowered his previous record of 10.63 from this year's National school championships, which put him as one of the fastest sprinters in the world for his age.
Azeem Fahmi, 15, runs a superb time of 10.57 in the 100m, a new personal best 
A 10.57 in the 100m would equal the under-18 record of Malaysian schools championships held by Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian since 2006.

Quoting from the most reliable statistical information, Jamaican sprinter Bouwahjgie Nkrumi holds this year's world's fastest time in the 100m in 10.54 for the age-group of 15.

Azeem's 10.57 timing is the world's second-fastest behind Nkrumi.

This result, however, was not surprising as he clocked 21.15 at 200m in July, meaning that a 10.5 timing would be achievable.

Azeem's 200m time of 21.15 is still the world's fastest time for the age-group of 15. He tied with American sprinter Erriyon Knighton.

Of note, Spanish youngster Daniel Gonzalez was said to have run 10.45 and 21.03 in the 100m and 200m, respectively but this is subject to confirmation of his timing regularities and age.

The questions remain, how fast and how much faster can he go?

Andre Anura Breaks Long Jump National Record?

>> November 02, 2019

Malaysia's SEA Games representative Andre Anura @ Anuar soared to 7.90m in the men's long jump to set a new national record.

Interestingly, it was set in a low-key Sabah's local track meeting, 3rd Berwang Open at Likas Stadium, Kota Kinabalu this morning (2 Nov 2019),

His first attempt jump was good enough to renew the previous record of 7.88m held by his fellow Sabahan Josbert Tinus since the 2007 Thailand Open.

The 20-year-old had a personal record of 7.72m prior to this meeting that he set during the Malaysia Open Grand Prix earlier in March.

This record is pending ratification by the Malaysia Athletics Federation.

If all requirements are met, the record will be ratified. Apart from sanction from the governing body or its affiliates, wind reading is compulsory and must be within the allowed limit of +2.0 m/s, and others.

He was the finalist of this year's Asian Athletics championships at Doha after recording a 7.58m distance during his qualifying round.

His first major meet was the 9th IAAF World Youth Championships in 2015 in Cali, Colombia. He took part in the triple jump during this under 18 age-group competition.

Based on this result, he now ranks second of the Southeast Asian lists behind Indonesia’s Asian Games medalist Sapwaturrahman (7.97m).

Azeem Fahmi clocks 10.64 in Perak All-Comers 2019

>> October 20, 2019

Malaysia’s teen sprinter Muhammad Azeem Fahmi notched his second-fastest time ever in the 100m dash, winning in 10.64 into a slight headwind (-0.5) in Perak All-Comers II at Teluk Intan on Sunday (20 October).

Azeem whose PB is 10.63 in the century dash got off to a good start and finished strongly to produce his third sub-10.70 performance.

The 15-year-old won the under-16 category, breezed unchallenged through to the line with Ahmad Amir Aiman Kamarudin and Luqman Nur Hakim Wahab in second (11.38) and third (11.41) places, respectively.

The senior category was won by national sprinter Mohd Aqil Yasmin who as well recorded 10.64 (-0.3). Behind Aqil were Selangor's Muhammad Aiman Faris Sayuti (11.18) and Sabah's Muhammad Din Norbik (11.22).

Meanwhile,  Irfan Shamsuddin, the winner of the last three SEA Games editions produced the best performance of the two-day meet. He hurdled the discus to a distance of 54.05 - a distance that would defend his SEA Games gold medal.

Azeem became a known sprint figure as he clocked 10.63 and 21.24 in the 100m and 200m, respectively during the April national schools meeting to become one of the World's all-time bests at his age for both events.

He went on to break his 200m record with a time of 21.15 during an invitational meeting in Thailand.

Jonathan Nyepa during his semifinal race (10.50s)
Jonathan's season-best of 10.37 that he set in July in Finland is the year's fastest time for Malaysia, and 3rd among Southeast Asian sprinters, after Indonesia's Lalu Zohi (10.03) and Thailand's Jirapong Meenapra (10.34).

He has a PB of 10.28 from 2017 South Korean national championships.

Lee Hup Wei set 2.27m in World Championship Finals

>> October 05, 2019

Lee Hup Wei has created a history for Malaysian athletics scene as he entered the final round of the men's high jump of the IAAF World Championships at Doha, Qatar (5 Oct).

He has registered a good height of 2.27m to finish in 8th position out of 12 in the finals, and of 31 athletes overall.

Hup Wei’s feat was the best achievement (finalist) by a Malaysian in the history of the World's major athletics competitions, both the World Championships and the Olympic Games.
Lee Hup Wei, a world champ finalist, is being introduced to the crowd
Qatar's Mutaz Barshim defended his gold medal in 2.37m.

The 32-year-old became the first Malaysian in the finals of World championships after clearing a height of 2.29m, a personal-best during the qualification round.

It was just 1 cm shy of the national record of 2.30m that is held by Nauraj Singh Randhawa since 2017.

He is coached by Aleksandr Garparyan at the national training centre at Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

What must be highlighted is that Lee Hup Wei's height of 1.81m would give a 'differential' of 48 cm (2.29m - 1.81m) which is exactly the difference between 'jumper's height and jumped height' of the all-time best high jumpers in the world, those whose best jumps of at least 2.40m (who had body heights of ~1.93m on average).
Lee Hup Wei at Doha Wold championships
He has been one of the most consistent Malaysian athletes in international competitions.

For a record, he became the Asian champion in 2007 at the age of 20, where he equaled Loo Kum Zee's national record of 2.24m from the 1995 SEA Games.

He then improved the record by 3cm with 2.27m during the "Good Luck Beijing" in 2008, the Olympic test competition, and then registered another two 2.27m in 2010.

He was in 5th place among world-class fields during the 1st IAAF Continental Cup at Split in 2010 after setting 2.25m, and took part in the Commonwealth Games at New Delhi in the same year and also finished in 5th place (2.23m).
Lee Hup Wei (right) and his coach Aleksandr Gasparyan
His participation in the Olympic Games was in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. He finished in 32nd (2.20m) and 30th (2.16m), respectively in the Games.

He was at the 2018 Asian Games at Jakarta and also the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

Most recently, he competed in the 2019 Asian championships at Doha (same venue) in April and finished in 4th place with a 2.26m clearance.

Jad Rizalman runs 100m in 10.96 at the age of 14
Rizalman came into the limelight two years ago as he grabbed four gold medals (U12 category) from the 100m, 200m 4x100m, and 4x200m at the National Schools Championships in Penang.

Just last months, Malaysian teen Muhammad Azeem Fahmi who was born in April 2004, has set blistering times of 10.63 in 100m and 21.15 in 200m, which are the real benchmarks of the World's Best Performance for the age of 15 (male) in the sprint events.

He also competed at the 2019 Western Australia Little Athletics in March and won a gold medal at 200m.

More recently, he won the 100m dash of the International Little Athletics Championship (U14) at Pahang in 11-flat hand-timed.
