Choa Chu Kang Sports Complex, Wednesday, April 17, 2013 — It was pure joy for V S Mohamed Jawhardeen of Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary when he won his second gold in the A Division 100m final at the 54th National Schools Track and Field Championships. His winning time of 10.79 seconds was just 0.09s outside the record of 10.70s set in 2012 by Donovan Chan Zhiyuan, then of Hwa Chong Institution.
Jawhardeen’s first gold medal came in the A Division 200m final where he was 0.08s outside the record of 21.83s.
“I felt good even though I started poorly. I just focused on my race and worked on my form. I was going for a new personal best. My opponents were tough as they were all better starters than me. I was nervous, but determined to do well,” said a satisfied Jawhardeen.
Ezra Toh of Raffles Institution was second in 10.99s to win his second silver medal of the meet, his first coming in the A Division 200m final.
Prince Leleon Lau of Victoria Junior College was third in 11.17s. He beat the 200m bronze medalist, Clement Chan of Anglo-Chinese Junior College, who finished fourth in 11.29s.
