2019 May SEA Roundup in Athletics – Izlyn improves from 14.14 to 13.88 women’s hurdles in the US College System
IZLYN REAPS BENEFITS OF US NCAA SYSTEM
13 May 2019
Singaporean Sprinter Nur Izlyn Zaini, 21. Claimed sole ownership of the National Record in the women’s 100 Hurdles. With a time of 13.88 (+1.7) at the 2019 Sun Belt Outdoor Champs in Jonesbro, Arkansas, on the weekend.
This mark was shattered by .26 seconds, the previous mark she had shared with Jannah Wong. So far this year, Zaini had run 14.33 on April 19 in Atlanta and a wind-aided 13.84 in Columbia. She then followed up with a credible 4th in the final with a 13.97 (-1.1) headwind.
The Performance catapults Zaini from 5th to 2nd in the SEA Rankings for 2019, only behind Emilia Nova of Indonesia 13.70. Nova has run a 13.59 with no wind reading as well. Zaini took bronze at the 2017 SEA Games with a then-national record of 14.14. Nova took silver in the Heptathlon but now is focusing more on the 100 Hurdles individual event.
Improvement in the US NCAA Div 1 System
The Bottom line is the other SEA Nations like Singapore are sending their athletes to US Colleges. And the results are very evident, as presented in the case of Zaini, who has been at Georgia Southern for one year.
Such opportunities to study and compete in the US Div 1 system seem to improve the athletes rather than just staying and training at home. Another athlete who benefited a lot was Soh Rui Yong of Singapore, who became a 2x SEA Games Champion in the Men’s Marathon after schooling in Oregon.
A prerequisite for athletes accepted into US Colleges on scholarships is the SAT Test. In the Philippines, it can be taken at the 13 following locations.
The Opportunity of studying in the United States provides a level of coaching, facilities, and competitions. That Filipino athletes will get nowhere near in the UAAP leagues. Therefore, with its partnership with the US Sports Academy, the PSC should really be pushing for athletes in all sports to study in America. Like what many other countries are already doing.
