Asian Rankings Preview and Updates
Japan’s Yoshihide Kiryu is the top-ranked man with 10.08, Kiryu’s best achievement outside of the 4×100 was his 2014 Bronze Medal at the World Juniors.
Kiryu is a sub 10 man, having run 9.98 in 2017, and is the Japanese National record holder, having broken Koji Ito long-standing national record for a long time, the Asian Record. World Junior Champion Lalu Zohri (PB 10.18), the fastest man in South East Asia from Indonesia, has run 10.20 so far this year. Zohri looks relatively easy with a rather sluggish start but mowed down his opponents at the Malaysia Grand Prix a few weeks ago. Perhaps the 9.91 Asian Record of Femi Ogunode of Qatar will be strongly challenged by Kiryu.
The Topman is 400 Hurdle world record holder Abderrahman Samba who has already timed 44.60 this year. The Bronze and Silver medalists from India at the last Asian Games, Arokiarajiv and Yahiya of India, have run 45.73 and 45.89.
National 400m Champion Joyme Sequita (PB 47.26) is ranked 42nd for the year with 47.61 so far. Jomar Udtohan, who has now withdrawn due to injury (46.95), ranked 20th.

Hassan. Fil-Heritage middle-distance runner Carter Lilly has clocked 1.48.95 this year, which ranks him 9th in the Asian Rankings (7th based on the 2 entries per country rule). Unfortunately, Carter is not available for Asian Champs due to other commitments.
Instead, the Philippines will enter SEA Games Silver Medalist Marco Vilog, whose 1:51.63 ranks him 34th in Asia for 2019.
