(Chinese Version)

After Ms. Alexandra Burghardt is next Track Beauty of the week is the 2014 Asian Games Champion YongLi Wei of China.

How appropriate is that as we are heading into the 2018 Asian Games in a few weeks. While we may think of Su Bingtian and another Chinese guy who broke 10 seconds.

The Chinese women are also making a resurgence in the world of Track and Field. 

Indeed Wei YongLi has come a long way since winning the Asian Games in 2014 in 11.48.

Wei Yongli has run the three leading times for Asian Woman this year with 10.99, 11.07, and 11.10. In fact, the 26-year-old is within shouting range of countrywoman Li Xumei of China’s Asian Record of 10.79 set in 1997.

Wei Yongli is the firm favorite at the 2018 Asian Games to defend her Asian Games Women’s 100m title.

Pinoyathletics expects Wei to easily win the 100 Meter Dash. In Jakarta the track although it’s reported as Balsam Rubber, not Mondo is still quite new and fast.

As the men ran 10.24 Sri Lanka and 10.25 Zohri on that track in the Pre-Asian Games back in February.

With this in mind, we believe Wei will win the race comfortably in a sub-11-second run.

Wei is not as good a 200-meter runner with a 22.97 PB this year (11.48 per 100, loses around almost .5 per 100 or hasn’t really trained for ran many 200s).

Apart from this Wei also has a Bronze Medal as part of China’s 4×100 at the 2017 World Relays in Nassau Bahamas. She also is the Asian Champion at the 100 in 2013 and 2015. And 2012 Asian Indoor Champion

Also competing will be Viktoriya Zyabinka of Kazakhstan the 2017 Asian Champion in the 100m and 200m.

Even Zyabinka 11.15 PB from 2016 is no match for Wei Yongli. Zyabinka does lead the 200m Rankings. Dutee Chand who is not far from her 2016 PB of 11.24, the Asian Bronze medalist from 2017. 

With Ameeri not entered, Bahrain is represented by Edidiong Odiong, who represented Nigeria at the 2014 Asian Juniors but then moved to Bahrain in 2016.

Japan is represented by the 30-year-old Chisato Fukushima (PB 11.21) the 2009 and 2015 Asian Champion and veteran Kana Ichikawa. 20-year-old Xiaojing Liang of China better known as the Asian Indoor 60m champion will struggle for a podium finish.

Rounding out the field is Chattha of Thailand who has gone from 11.88 to 11.50 this year, and Philippine’s new acquisition Kristina Knott who has a PB of 11.44 from 2016 and has run 11.50 this year.
