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.

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.
