Singapore Open Track and Field: Chen Xiang rewrites 110m hurdles national record twice as Tia breaks national mark in triple jump
Going into the final of the Men’s 110 metres hurdles event, Ang Chen Xiang was looking to rewrite the national record for the second time at the 81st Singapore Open after clocking 14.27 seconds in the heats, which bettered his previous mark of 14.36s. But as he warmed up for the race, he did not even know if his body could make it to the finish line. “I went to the first hurdle (during warm-up), my calves started cramping so I was like I knew my body was starting to complain,” said Chen Xiang.
