Khairul Hafiz Jantan is set to be drafted into the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games squad after his performance in last month’s World Youth Athletics Championships in Cali, Colombia.

PETALING JAYA: Khairul Hafiz Jantan’s hopes of winning a grand double in the sprints have been dashed.

Khairul, who won the boys’ 100m gold in a personal best of 10.36 on Saturday, could only bag the silver in the 200m in 21.15 in the 17th Asian Junior Athletics Championships in Vietnam on Monday.
