Ann Lee of Nanyang Girls High School (NYGH) bettered her personal best by one centimetre with a winning jump of 5.11 metres in the Girls’ B Division Long Jump event to clinch gold. But the highlight of the long jump event, according to Ann was not so much her win but the persistent disturbance of a white bird at the track. The white bird would periodically swoop towards some of the long jump participants and even forcing the officials to restart the jump countdown for some of the girls.
Claudia Tang stopped the clock at 5 minutes and 9.98 seconds, falling short of her personal best by six seconds.
