Defending champion Lim En Ning of Dunman High School (DHS) defied injuries to deliver a stunning leap of 5.66 metres, edging out her fellow competitors to win the A division girls' long jump event.
Tedd Toh is perhaps fondly remembered for his animated antics, but he was uncharacteristically silent right before his sixth and final attempt in the A Division boys' long jump competition at the 60th National Schools Track and Field Championship. The Hwa Chong Institution fifth-year student knew he had one last chance at catching Victoria Junior College's Kampton Kam, who had recorded 6.81 metres earlier, against a head wind of 1.6 metre/second on his third jump. The loud roar at the end told the whole story.
Coming into the 60th National Schools Track and Field Championships, Deseree Khor of Victoria Junior College (VJC) was upbeat about her chances at gold in the A Division girls' javelin. After all, she was the two-time defending champion in the event's B Division and had also set a then-new C Division record in 2016. Even as she moved up to the heavier 600-gram javelin in the A Division this year, her results remained status quo as she clinched victory in a new personal best of 32.62 metres.
