KUALA LUMPUR – Young sprinter Badrul Hisyam Abdul Manap continued his record breaking feat at the Asean Schools Championships by setting a new 200m record in Brunei, today.
The 18-year-old who had smashed the National record in the 100m yesterday to win the gold medal at the meet, clocked 21.39s to win the 200m, en route to rewriting his own record of 21.61s which was set last year.
With his win today, the Melaka-born Badrul completed a grand double in the championships.
Khairul Hafiz Jantan, another Malaysian, took the silver medal with a time of 21.47s, ahead of Thailand’s Vitnasu Phosri (22.05s).
In yesterday’s 100m, Badrul erased the 17 year-old National 100m record of 10.30s held by Sarawakian Watson Nyambek since 1998, with a time of 10.29s. – BERNAMA
