New Kid on the Blocks

Indonesia’s Lalu Mohammed Zohri caused a massive surprise at Day 1 of the Pre-Asian Games Test to meet in Palembang, Indonesia. Indonesia held the event for Athletics February 11-14, 201 athletes and 11 countries joined the athletics. Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines joined from SEA Nations.

A large home team from Indonesia saw some very positive results. None more so than 17-year-old discovery Lalu Mohammed Zohri. Zohri up against Seniors clocked the fastest time in the heats taking heat 1 in  10.25 (+1.1).  And ended up narrowly second in the final 10.32 to Vinoj Muthumuni (Sri Lanka) 10.30 (-0.3) who he had beaten in the heats.

Zohri time was the 2nd fastest ever by an Indonesian athlete and a National Junior Record.

The National Record belongs to 2x SEA Games Suraya Agung Wibowo which is 10.17 done in 2009 set at the Laos SEA Games.

With now out of service, it is difficult to find out what Zohri PB is for 100. But data indicates he was mainly a 200 runner who has now started running more 100m.

In 2017 he ran a 21.96 in April at the Indonesia Youth meet. Then he improved a few months later to run a 21.74 200m in 2017 as a 16-year-old so it will be interesting to see what he ends up running in the 200m Dash at this meet. He was the silver medalist at the 2017 ASEAN School Games 200m.
