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).
