Hugh performance from Sky Athletics Club at last week 5th Club Zoom Kindred Spirit Series 2018. The team managed to podium at some events while demonstrating tremendous effort against top athletes from Singapore, Malaysia, Northern Territory(Australia), Hong Kong and Pakistan(1 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze). It was an awesome experience for our athletes to be able to race against the best
Our first event of the day was the Boys 13-15 80 Meter Dash U16 timed final with Zachary Tan and Lim Yu Hng representing Sky Athletics Club. Put into the same heats with athletes from Smk Putrajaya and this year National Schools C Boys 100m Finalist, Kelvin Siew, our duo did very well with Lim Yu Hng coming in 2nd overall(only losing to Lekjeen, Chakcharat(15 years old) from Thailand Academy) and Zachary coming in 8th overall.
The next event was the Men 13-19 100 Meter Dash U20 heats with Mohd Bazli representing Sky Athletic Club. Lining up on the fastest heat with athletes from Athletics NT Australia, Singapore Sports School and Hong Kong, he performed tremendously and managed to qualify for the Men 13-19 100 Meter Dash U20 finals with a timing of 12.21s where he finished 8th overall against athletes from Athletics NT, Smk Putrajaya and Singapore Sports School.
One first female event for the day was the Women 16-17 100 Meter Hurdles U18/U20/Open Open with Nurul Ainun representing Sky Athletic Club. Doing her first hurdle event after so many years, Ainun did everyone proud by coming home with a timing of 19.71s and a silver medal.
First team event was up next with the Boys 13-15 4×100 Meter Relay U16. A final featuring teams from Total Kinetics Sports, Athletics NT Australia, Hua Yi Secondary School and Racing Star Sports, our quartet of Ng Jun Feng Lucas, Soh Kai Rui Joel, Zachary Tan and Lim Yu Hng set the track on fire with a new personal best of 47.45s and emerged victorious.
Up next was one of the most exciting race of the evening, the Women 20-34 100 Meter Dash Open, featuring Singapore National Sprinter Chandran Kugapriya, Malaysia sprinters Selvaretnam Komalam Shally and Mohamad Siti Fatima and sprinters from Flash Athletics Club. Charmaine Goh, our sole representative ran her hearts out at the 100m and managed to finish 4th(she is not a short sprinter) with a timing of 14.07s
Straight after the 100m event was the Women 16-99 800 Meter Run Open which featured national athlete Goh Chui Ling, Athletics NT Australia Siddons Makayla and Detbun Kansiyada from Thailand Academy. Tired after her 100m race, Charmaine Goh did her very best for the 800m(considering she only had 5mins break between the two events) and managed to finish 3rd with a timing of 2:47.18.
Big thanks to all the supporters, Wei Shuang and Hari for coming down to support the team too and of course Club Zoom for organising such an amazing event.
