2019 SEA Women’s 200 Meter Rankings
2019 South East Asia Women’s 200 Meter Rankings Review
For the 2019 SEA Women’s 100 Meter Rankings Review. It is the beginning of a series of posts where we will go 20 athletes Deep and explore events in more depth. This is based on our 2019 SEA Ranking Lists.
The Ranking was topped by Kristina Marie Knott who set a new Trifecta of records South East Asian Record, SEA Games Record and Philippines Record and in the process took the gold medal at the 2019 SEA Games in New Clark City. The US Born Knott whose mother Rizalina is from Cavite chose to live and train in the Philippines to prepare for SEA Games for over a year enduring the same conditions as the rest of the local athletes. Knott clocked 23.07 to top the 200 Heats at the SEA Games setting a trifecta of records mentioned above. And then went onto further improve that in the final with a 23.01 clocking in the final.
Just missing out on the 200m Olympic Qualifying standard of 22.80 for 200m. Which she will be aiming for this coming year. With Olympics rescheduled to 2021.
Contrary to the media’s publication of Philippine Mainstream Newspapers got there facts wrong and were incorrect Knott did not actually break Lydia De Vega Philippine Record as it had already been eclipsed. She broke the mark of another Fil-Heritage athlete Zion-Corrales Nelson who had ran 23.24 and 23.16 earlier in the year.
Nelson herself was ranked #2 in 2019 with the 3rd and 4th fastest times of the year behind Kristina Knott. Nelson clocked 23.24 and 23.16 at the WEST NCAA Preliminaries in Sacramento in May breaking the 33 year old National Record of Lydia De Vega set in Walnut in 1986 of 23.35s. Zion however did not participate in the SEA Games in the 200m.
Le Tu Chinh of Vietnam the Champion from 2017 SEA Games wound up 3rd in the Rankings and was a very distant second to Knott in the 100m with a 23.45 clocking, outside her 23.30 PB.
Newcomer Alvin Tehupeiory of Indonesia, better known as a 400 Hurdler Before. Clocked a PB of 23.76 at the Indonesian National Games but was unable to replicate this in further meets finishing outside medals in the 2019 SEA Games.
Shanti Veronica Pereira of Singapore the 2015 SEA Games Champion took a bronze again in the SEA Games 200m in 23.77. Poolkerd also dipped under 24 seconds. Kayla Richardson the 2015 SEA Games silver medallist in this event timed a wind aided 23.90.
