Sofian clocks 13.8
Rayzam Sha Sofian the 2017 SEA Games Champion in 110 Hurdles showed he was serious in regaining the SEA Games title he lost to Clinton Kingsley Bautista of the Philippines in New Clark SEA Games 2019.
Sofian stopped the clock at 13.8 at the Malaysia Close on December 19 at Kuala Lumpur. Just .05 seconds away from his National Recordset in Weinham Germany in 2017. The 33-year-old showed no signs of slowing down improving on his season-best time of 14.18 in Kazakhstan earlier in the year. The performance is the fastest time in South East Asia in four years.
But he was not alone Sofian’s buddies Benedict Ian Gawok (14.0) and Mohd Rizzua Haizad Bin Muhammad (14.0 heats).
Sofian famously shaved his head which showed in the montage during the medal ceremony when he won the SEA Games 110 Hurdle in Kuala Lumpur in 2017.
Marc Louis Brian of Singapore who made the semi-finals in the World Juniors and ran 10.39 recently has opted to focus on the 100 meters and will not participate in the Hurdle event.
