THERE was remarkable progress made in the athletes’ performances during the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) International Combined Events championships at the National Sports Council (NSC) Training Centre in Bukit Jalil.

The two-day championships, organised by the Bukit Jalil Sports School for a fourth season and with support from Milo, was a platform for the Under-13 and Under-14 students, both boys and girls, from various schools to gauge their progress.

Besides Bukit Jalil, six other teams — Sabah Sports School (SSMS), Tunku Mahkota Ismail Sports School (SSTMI), Pahang Sports School (SSMP), Singapore Sports School (SSS), SMK Tabuan Jaya (SNKTJ) and Ubonratchathani Sports School (UBON) — took part in the championships. Two teams from Australia were unable to come due to local commitments.

Leading the pack: Parinya Kongsuk of Ubon Ratchathan set the early pace in the Under-13 boys 800m.

The championships are unique in that participants in the Under-13 age group have to compete in five events — 80m hurdles, shot putt, high jump, long jump and 800m, while those in the Under-14 age group feature in six events — 100m hurdles, high jump, 100m, long jump, shot putt and 800m.

The championships, according to event’s co-ordinator S. Entheren, was a big success.

“We saw several athletes making an impact in their respective events with new personal bests. This shows that the athletes had been training diligently since the last championships,’’ he said.

Entheren said the aim was to expose the athletes to multi-lateral events before specialising in a particular one.

“The athletes would have to train for their respective events and we wanted to see them out do their own results.

When they are 15, we expect them to specialise in one. They would be able to identify the events which suit them most,’’ he said.

Among the athletes who impressed were Tuan Juliana Hassan, Nur A’in Mohd Zulkifli and Muhammad Nazri Mustafa. The trio from Bukit Jalil Sports School recorded personal best in their favourite events.

Tuan Juliana won the gold medal in the girls’ Under-14 high jump when she cleared 1.57m. She was third in the 100m and second in the long jump and finished second overall with 3,850 points.

Nur A’in, taking part in the girls’ Under-13 age group, clocked a personal best of 12.9 en route to her third placing in the 80m hurdles. She also won a silver in the shot putt with 7.95m effort.

Muhamad Nazri was the overall winner in the boys’ Under-13 age group after being on the podium for three events. He won golds in the shot putt and high jump, and bronze in the long jump. He accumulated 3,520 points for the overall crown.

Entheren said they were pleased with the progress of the athletes from the Singapore Sports School.

“Some of them have been regulars in the championships for the past two years. They improved a lot and we hope to see them making an impact in the coming years,’’ said Entheren.

Bukit Jalil Sports School principal Datuk Marina Chin and Education Ministry’s sport division director Ee Hong gave away the prizes.
