Bishan Stadium, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 — Megan Ng of Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary set a new record as she stormed home to take the C girls’ 600 metres gold in a time of 1 minute 51.12 seconds at the 54th National Inter-Primary School Track & Field Championships.
Nur Maisara binte Razlee, then of Greenwood Primary, had set the previous record of 1:51.79s in 2009.
Megan started off strong and maintained her lead till the end, with her closest competitor being a good five seconds behind.
“I’m very happy about the win, but I did not expect to break the record. It sure is a great motivation for me to do better next year,” said 11-year-old Megan, whose record-breaking time was also a new personal best.
Eilis Hor of Nanyang Primary won the silver in 1:56.24s, while her teammate Celeste Ang took home the bronze with a time of 1:58.81s.
