2019 South East Asia Women’s 100 Meter Rankings Review

For the 2019 SEA Women’s 100 Meter Rankings. 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.

Zion Corrales-Nelson topped the Ranking List, putting her #2 all-time in the Phi Rankings. Zion, however, could not emulate this feat at SEA Games finishing 8th in the Final.

Kristina Marie Knott clocked 11.42 the #3 All-Time time ever by a Filipina athlete. At SEA Games she narrowly missed out on the Gold by .01 against defending champion Le Tu Chinh of Vietnam. 

While Chinh ran a season-best her personal best of 11.40 was set in 2018 and unlike Knott and Zion did not set a personal best in 2019.

Although she peaked right to defend her SEA Games after getting off to a very good start from the blocks.

Bronze Again and Again for Shanti

Shanti Veronica Pereira who was SEA Games Bronze medalist in 2015 and 2017, added her third bronze medal again in 2019 in the 100m Event.

Despite this Shanti clocked a personal best of 11.58 at the Asian Championships earlier in the year performing better than both Chinh and Knott at the same meet.

Shanti clocked 11.66 to take bronze at SEA Games just .08 from her PB.

Supawan Thipat who made the Asian Final finishing 8th in the 100-meter dash in 11.64, clocked a PB of 11.62 at the Asian Grand Prix. But wound up 4th in the SEA Games in a slower 11.74.

Another athlete who emerged was Alvin Tehupeiory of Indonesia better known as a 400m/400m Hurdler who came out and won the Indonesian nationals in the 100 and 200.

However, she could not duplicate these performances at SEA Games.

2017 SEA Games Silver Medalist in 100m Zaidatul Husniah Zulkifili who trained in Florida but got injured had a very good showing at the start of the year clocking 11.65 into a -2.6 headwind.

Which is probably with wind adjustment better than her 11.59 +1.6 in 2018. She, however, was not able to duplicate this at SEA Games finishing 6th in 11.84.

Chattha of Thailand who has an 11.50 PB clocked 11.75 this year.

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.

While 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.

And 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.

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.
