Elizabeth ran 12.41 seconds, clocked with a tailwind of 0.1 metre/second to break Lim Joo Lee's C division hand-timed 12.6s record that was set in 1993. Teammate Bernice Liew claimed the silver in a personal best 12.72s. Both girls later combined to help Nanyang Girls' High School to gold in the 4 by 100 metres relay.
Nanyang Girls' all-star C Division relay teams were anchored by 80m hurdles-100m double gold medallist Elizabeth-Ann Tan and 800m-1500m champion Wu Shu Han. The girls clocked 50.04 seconds in the 400m relay -- their best this season -- and 4 minutes 15.68 seconds in the 1600m relay to claim two gold medals to add to the five individual ones the school earned previously.

C Div 1500m: Nan Hua’s Yu Zhe strikes first gold; Nanyang Girls’ Shu Han repeats middle distance double
Lim Yu Zhe sat and he sat and he sat, content to let the others set the pace in the C boys 1500-metre race at the 58th National Schools Track and Field Championships. But his agonising 0.06 second loss to Raffles Institution's Sean Tay in the 3000-metre last week was perhaps still fresh in his mind and he didn't want to make the same mistake again of making his move too late.
Nationals Steeplechase: Jerrell Lim earns St Andrew’s 1st gold in 19 years; Hwa Chong sweep A boys podium
Jerrell finished the B boys 2000 metres steeplechase ahead of the three people who have recently outran him, including Singapore Sports School's Rohan D'Costa.

Damian's smooth execution in the final stretch helped him overhaul the fast tiring Ken Hayashi from National Junior College in the final 50 metres, who could only watch on helplessly, unable to summon any more energy in his legs after having powered through the first 200 metres and led for most of the race.
After a stunning leap in the long jump Friday that ranked her the fifth-best female Singaporean, Dunman High School's Lim En Ning doubled her gold medal haul at the 58th National Schools Track and Field Championships with a personal best in the high jump.
