Azeem Fahmi sets 200m PB at 21.04 (+1.1) Perak All-Comers 2020

>> February 22, 2020

Malaysian sprint sensation Muhammad Azeem Fahmi had an impressive season opener by setting a new personal best in the 200m during the 1st day of Perak All-Comers at Ipoh today (22 Feb 2020).

The 15-year-old clocked a time of 21.04 (+1.1), erasing his previous best of 21.15 he set last year in Thailand. Read here

He was not pushed to his maximum and crossed the line ahead of his closest opponent by at least 10 meters.

This shows that he will run even faster in the 200m and will likely improve on his 100m best time of 10.57, which he set in November last year. Read here

In Malaysia, only six senior sprinters have run faster than him, with Russel Taib's national record of 20.77 leading the list.

This is followed by Khairul Hafiz Jantan at 20.90 that broke the Malaysian long-time record in 2017. Behind him is the time of 20.92 shared by M. Jegathesan from 1968 and Jonathan Nyepa from 2019.

Azmi Ibrahim ran 20.97 nineteen years ago, and Aqil Yasmin's 21.01 set on the same track today, was another one above Azeem's.
