St. Patrick's School's Viresh Kumar clinched the B Div boys' high jump gold with a personal best clearance of 1.90m, getting the better of RI's national u15 record holder Rei Tan who settled for silver with 1.88m.
Victoria Junior College's Faith Ford clocked 4:52.41 in the A Div girls' 1500m final to shatter the 24-year-old electronically-timed record of 4:54.02 held by Rahmah Begum, and Zhang Cuiying's hand-timed mark of 4:53.7 set in 1991. The feat added to her record-breaking run in the 3000m heats two weeks earlier.
Clara Lim of RGS rose above her competition to snatch the B Div girls' 100m gold in 12.49s (-0.1m/s), slashing one hundredth of a second off her personal best and dipping just 0.04s ahead of nearest challenger Teh Ying Shan of Chung Cheng High (Yishun). In a historic first for the girls' 100m across all divisions, all eight finalists went under the 13s barrier.
Raffles Institution (RI)’s Tate Tan clinched gold in the A Division boys’ 100-metre final in an eye-catching 10.74 seconds (-0.2m/s), becoming the third-fastest schoolboy in NSG history in the event.
