KUALA LUMPUR – In just 48 hours, national discus thrower Muhammad Irfan Shamsuddin has once again broken the national record with a 61.56m throw in a championship held in Turnov, Czech Republic.
Muhammad Irfan had just set a 61.10m record at the Hallesch Werfertage Championship in Halle, Germany, on Monday.
The 22-year-old athlete made the record throw in his fourth attempt.
This is a major boost for the athlete from Negeri Sembilan who is looking to defend the gold medal at the 29th SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur this August.
In the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, he won the gold with a 56.62m throw. – BERNAMA
