2019 May SEA Roundup in Athletics – Izlyn improves from 14.14 to 13.88 women’s hurdles in the US College 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 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.

2019 Singapore Open Track and Field Championships – Reports

Day 2 Reports

Due to time constraints, I ran out of time to post a full analysis of Day 2. Due to a lot of competitions coming up and other commitments. Later on, we will post a summary of Philippine Results in a table.

The article on Jomar Udtohan 46.95 is here


Day 1 Report

Francis Medina ran Season’s Best of 51.52, improving his 53, and 52-second clockings at the Hong Kong Summer meet and Philippine Nationals. For a well-deserved silver. But in good company behind Keisuke Nozawa, an Olympic Semi-Finalist in this event at the 2016 Rio Olympics alongside Eric Cray.

Kristina Knott of the Philippines was Finalist at the Asian Games in the 200. Narrowly held onto a win over 2015 SEA Games Champion Shanti Veronica Pereira of Singapore 23.79 to 23.85.

Same order as SEA Games Ismail 16.01m, Diones 15.96m, and Tepparak 15.85m. Malipay 4th last SEA Games dropped down to 5th place. Hakimi will now carry onto Malaysia for the Grand Prix on March 30. After having leaped a windy 16.47m +3.1 in Australia. Tiring the last few weeks.

Rayzam Shah Sofian, the SEA Games Champion, improved his season’s best from 14.12 at Ilagan to 13.89 in heats and then again to 13.82 in finals. To place 3rd behind two Hong Kong athletes that both broke the meet record.

SEA Games bronze medalist, Clinton Bautista of the Philippines, finished 5th in season-best of 14.18 #2 SEA athlete. Clintons PB is 14.14 from last year in Taipei. He ran 14.22 at the national open in Ilagan. A good run from Alvin Vergel broke his PB 14.64 in heats to 14.56 and then repeated that in the finals.

Marco Vilog, the SEA Games silver medalist, took silver, improving his season’s best from 1.53.09 at Phi National Open to 1.51.63. He hit the 1.51.70 5th place qualifier for SEA Games.

Joining Carter Lily, who ran it at the Phi Nationals on the SEA Games squad. Presumably, this means as two have now qualified, the qualification mark moves from 1.51.70 to 1.51.63. With Carter already having timed 1.49.17 this year.

Evalyn Palabrica broke her Personal best set 5 years ago in 48.25m at the 2014 UAAP Palabrica threw the Javelin 48.34m and finished 5th. But Evalyn showed she is well on track for SEA Games, sitting in 4th SEA Rankings. But behind 3 Thai’s of only 2 will get to compete at SEA Games. Palabrica took the bronze medal last SEA Games. Nachan of Thailand, the SEA Games Champion in her first competition of 2019, took the gold.

Albert Mantua of the Philippiwho threw his PB of 46.94m at the National Open who was the season lea until today in the Men’s Discus. I finished with a bronze.  Binh improved his PB from 47.31m at the National Games last year in Vietnam.  Mantua safely made it over the 44.80m qualifier for SEA Games yet again.
