Choa Chu Kang Stadium, Friday, July 11, 2008 – Ng Chin Hui (#155) of the Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) won the gold for the C Division Boys 400m event at the 49th Inter-school Track & Field Championships with a time of 51.97 seconds. With this time, he broke the C Division Boys record of 52.42s set by Singapore Sports School student Jamie Ross Coates in 2006.
